Within the Council, each school has an area that it traditionally serves, called the Catchment Area. For further information and details concerning school catchment areas please contact the admissions section or enter your postcode:
In line with current legislation, parents are required to express a preference for the school they wish their child to attend, even if it is their catchment school. Pupils who reside within a defined catchment area will therefore have no automatic right to attend that school. A formal application must be made.
Failure to apply could lead to some parents/carers being denied a place for their child at their local/chosen school, if demand exceeds the number of places available. It must be noted that catchment children will always take priority over applications from outside the catchment area.
