What says..

Housed in what was once a dark and gloomy Victorian maze, imaginative building work has turned Belleville into a really beautiful school, where old-time space and solidity meets modern light and technology. Intelligent, creative use of ICT is integrated into the fabric of the school and is awesomely good: iPads and tablets are mounted in every corridor, displaying slideshows of school events, offering information, etc. But none of this has come at the price of old-fashioned excellence. Work on the walls showed…

What The Good Schools Guide says

Executive Headteacher

Since 2001, Mr John Grove (50s) BEd MA, previously head at West Hill Primary School in Wandsworth. His son, daughter and partner all work in education. A man consumed by his job, who found Belleville failing in 2001 and has worked uncompromisingly to make it the most sought-after primary school in the area. In his rare moments off, admits to being a season ticket holder at Chelsea FC. A visionary, who still gets unexpected hugs from the youngest of his charges as he roams the corridors.


At 4+, 120 places, in four forms of 30, with extra 'bulge classes some years. Heavily oversubscribed. Usual local authority admissions criteria: special requirements, siblings and those living closest to the school.

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
