Phil and Jim has a well-earned reputation in North Oxford as an excellent school, and some years can be oversubscribed. However, a two-class intake and a fairly mobile population mean that places in all years can become free during the course of the school year. In particular, there is often a lot of movement over the summer term. While there are many applications for Foundation Stage, places often become free in later rounds of the admissions process over the summer term, summer holidays, and into the autumn term itself. We always maintain a continued interest list for the academic year. If you would like your child to attend the school, please consult our Admissions Policy and feel free to contact the school office with any queries.
