The school has a wide catchment area, drawing children from towns, hamlets and villages in West Oxfordshire in a twenty mile radius around the village of Ascott-under-Wychwood (map). Through its carefully planned programme for settling new children in quickly, the school ensures that the transition process is a rewarding experience. Prior to admission, children are encouraged to spend time with their prospective class in order to get to know their classmates and teacher. The youngest age a child can start is three, with older children joining at later times.
