Hi all
I am moving to oxfordshire area from our home in Melbourne, Australia in July this year as my husband has accepted a job transfer to the area. I am feeling a little overwhelmed by the primary schools and admissions as it is a very different procedure to what we have here in Australia. We understand we need to find a rental home first and then find a primary school for our kids, ages 6 and 7. Big dilemma is whether we live in central Oxford or go a little further afield such as woodstock, Combe, bladon etc... I'm under the impression from ofsted reports that all 3 of the above mentioned areas have good local schools? Also - would it be "easier" to get them in to a small village school as opposed to living in central Oxford where it seems schools are difficult to get in to due to large numbers? Clearly we don't want to commit to a year or so rental contract in a smaller, more rural village if we can't get school placements at the local school in the area where we are living. Advice please!!! Stressed....
