Don’t judge a school based on what others say – visit the school and see for yourself.
Are your preferences realistic?
Applicants can view how places were offered last year to determine whether their child is likely to be offered a place.
Do you live close enough to qualify for a place?
Remember that although this information can be used to give an idea of how likely it is that your child will be offered a place, the ‘last distance’ will change every year. We can never guarantee any child will be offered a place at any school.
How will your child travel to school?
Does your child have special needs?
Children with special needs who do not have a EHCP apply in the normal way. Applicants can read about the support available for their child.
Ofsted have changed the way they inspect and report on schools. For further information, visit the Ofsted information page.
