The icons on the map are colour coded to indicate the type of school, and differentiated according to the age range of the pupils. The key to the left of the map explains these icons. Please see our FAQ for an explanation of the different types of school.

Admission areas

Subject to data availability, and where appropriate to the school's admission criteria, the map will plot areas around schools defined by the cut-off distance for the most recent year's admission. These represent the approximate areas where you would have needed to live in order to get a place at the school (assuming you do not already have a child at the school).

School not oversubscribed

A yellow star around a school indicates that it was not oversubscribed in the relevant year. In these circumstances schools will accept any applicant regardless of how far you live from the school.

Straight line distance admission area

Where the admission area is a circle it means that the Local Authority measures distance in a straight line (i.e. as-the-crow-flies) between home and school.

Note that if the school has a predefined catchment area (also known as a priority area), then a blue circle indicates that the cut-off distance applied to a home outside this predefined area.

Walking distance admission area

Irregular shaped admission areas indicate that the Local Authority measured distance using shortest walking route from the home to the school.

As with straight line distance admission areas, if the school has a predefined catchment area, then a blue shape indicates that the cut-off distance applied to a home outside the predefined area.

Cut-off not known

A grey diamond indicates that the school is oversubscribed, but that the cut-off distance is either not known, or not relevant given the admission criteria, for example, if places are allocated by random ballot.

Admission areas, catchment areas and closest school criteria

Some schools have predefined areas (known as 'catchment', 'priority' or simply 'defined' areas). Applicants from within these areas are given priority over applicants living outside these areas. If priority is given to parents applying to their nearest school, this also creates a predefined area which works the same as a catchment area. For a more detailed explanation of how catchment areas work, and how they relate to cut-off distances, please see our article about school catchment areas.

If an admission area is red it means that the cut-off distance applied to a home within the school's catchment area. In these cases, admissions may be determined by distance, and you could live closer to the school than the cut-off distance, but if you are outside the predefined catchment area then you would not have got a place.

If an admission area is blue and catchment areas are also used, it means that the cut-off distance applied to a home outside the school's catchment area. In these cases, your house could be outside the blue cut-off distance admission area, but you would still have got a place at the school if you lived inside the catchment area (green area).

Subject to data availability, we show predefined catchment areas on the map in green, as indicated below. These will only be shown for the currently selected school (i.e. when you tap, or mouse over, the school's icon).

Catchment / Priority area

These green areas show a school's predefined catchment area, or if applicable, the nearest school area (i.e. the area defined by the fact that for homes within the area, the school is the closest relevant school). Note, these areas are often approximations, so if you live close to the border, please check with the relevant local authority whether your home is inside.

Straight line distance cut-off within catchment area

The red circle indicates that the last successful applicant to the school lived within the predefined catchment area (which will be shown as the green area on the map subject to data availability), and within the relevant cut-off distance area.

Note that if no green area is shown on the map, please follow Local Authority links to check whether you live inside the catchment area.

Walking distance cut-off within catchment area

An irregular red shape indicates that the last successful applicant to the school lived within the predefined catchment area (which will be shown as the green area on the map subject to data availability), and within the relevant cut-off distance area as measured by shortest walking route.

Note that if no green area is shown on the map, please follow Local Authority links to check whether you live inside the catchment area.
