Your Preferences

We advise all parents to think very carefully aboutn their three preferences and to use them wisely.

School places are allocated according to the published oversubscription criteria for that school.  This can include criteria such as whether you live in the catchment area, whether there are siblings already at the school and the distance you live from the school.

Please be realistic in your preferences. You have a higher priority for local schools.  If you choose an oversubscribed shcool, the further away you live the less likely you ar to be offeres a place.

Please note that personal circumstances, such as child care arrangement, are not part of the oversubscription criteria for any school and will not be taken into consideration.

Finally, we always advice parents to include their catchment school as one of their three preferences.
