Consultation Period

The White Horse Federation is holding a formal consultation period, during which members of the Bicester community can have their say on the proposed development of Whitelands Academy.

We invite you to express your views and opinions on this proposal by completing the consultation form below. Please note that all opinions must be submitted by Tuesday 24th September to be considered.

Open Evening

The future of Whitelands Academy is a bright and exciting one, and we want your child to be a part of it.

Come and see the vision we have for your child’s education at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday 24th September as we host an open evening at St Edburg’s Primary School, Pioneer Way, Bicester OX26 1BF.

All parents are invited to attend the open evening and find out for themselves about the first-class facilities and excellent education our students will benefit from. Admissions information will also be provided so you know how to submit an application for your child before all 600 places are filled.

We are looking forward to the open evening and introducing you to the new era of education for 11- to 16-year-olds in Bicester.

To successfully submit an application for a place at our school, parents are required to complete and send two forms: one specifically for Whitelands Academy as well as the county council application form. This is because, as a new school, Whitelands Academy will not be an option on the county council form.

When filling out the county council application form, please indicate your school preferences from the list of existing secondaries in the area.

Applying for a place at Whitelands Academy will not prejudice your application for other schools. However, if you do not complete both forms, and you are not subsequently allocated a place at Whitelands Academy, you will be allocated the next-nearest school with spaces available. The school may be out of the area or an undesirable option for you or your child.

If your application for a place at Whitelands Academy is successful, then your child will be given the choice of attending Whitelands or the school they have been allocated through the county council application process.

The deadline for both application forms is the 31st October 2019, so make sure you have submitted these forms before that date. You will find out if your application for a place at Whitelands has been successful in early March 2020. This will correspond with the county council allocating your child a place at another secondary school in the area.

If you have any questions about Whitelands Academy or the application process, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email at [email protected] or call us on 01793 818603.
