  • those living in close proximity to the school.

There is one intake per year and children start school in the September before they turn 5. Our waiting list is administered by the London Borough of Barnet (LBB) admissions team. Should you need to apply for a place at any time during the school year you would also contact the LBB admissions team.

The London Borough of Barnet calculate distance to school as:

“Distance is measured in a straight line between the address point for the child’s home, supplied by Ordnance Survey, to the school’s main gate using the Council’s computerised geographical information system”

The map below gives a 'rough' guidance to the catchment area. Please note these boundaries should not be taken as final. The decision will be taken by Barnet Council.
