What the school says...
Clapton Girls' Academy (CGA), set in the heart of Hackney, was founded in 1906. It is an outstanding academy which provides opportunities for every student to achieve their very best. The Academy has a long and successful history of providing the best, forward thinking education for girls.
Students at CGA are encouraged to reach their potential, value their progress and enjoy their experiences along the way. Our exceptional GCSE and A Level results are a key measure of success but we also pride ourselves in developing reflective, kind, hardworking and independent individuals. Teachers and other adults are inspiring, supportive professionals whose commitment and dedication is evident throughout the Academy. The Academy is very well-resourced and girls are offered many exciting opportunities to learn and experience success.
Both students and staff at Clapton Girls' Academy are very proud to be part of an established community that values a rich diversity of language and culture. ...Read more

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
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.
