How to Apply

Admission Arrangements for applications to Y7: The Coordinated Process

All spaces for admission to Year 7 at Oasis Academy Arena are allocated via the Pan London Coordinated Process.  This means that, wherever you reside in London, you may list a school in any London borough on just one form (the Common Application Form).  If you wish to apply for a place at Oasis Academy Arena, you must complete the Common Application Form (CAF), available in hard copy or online from your home local authority.  There is no supplementary information form.

For Croydon residents, information regarding all secondary schools in the borough is available on the the Croydon Council website.  This site also provides you with a step by step guide regarding the application process.  We have also provided a range of information to support you here.

Many primary schools will hold a transfer event in the Autumn your child enters Y6, outlining the process and providing helpful information.  We are always happy to attend these events to help to answer any questions about the admissions process.

All Year Groups

We still have some limited spaces for our new intake.  Please contact Croydon Council if you wish to be offered a place on [email protected] or you may contact the Academy directly [email protected].  Tours and visits can be organised at a time convenient to you.

We always welcome visitors at our Academy. Throughout the year we will schedule open days for you to come in and meet our staff and students, whilst getting a tour of our facilities. 

However we are able to cater for parents and carers who are unable to visit on these days by special request. Get in touch with the school office today and we'll be pleased to arrange a date with you!
