What says..

They proudly showed us their (beautifully written) handwriting books, and made sure we didn’t miss out on any of the wall displays, installations or trophy cabinet during our tour. We loved the positive re-enforcement which happens in each class weekly, where one or more child is selected because of a kind or generous action and are the focus of ‘the sun shines on...because...’ One parent said that ‘every child gets the chance to shine at this school’, although another added ‘not in school productions....usual suspects.’ both boys and girls triumph in borough-wide competitions, boys winning recent golf and football championships, girls excelling in football and netball...

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head teacher

Since 1996, Evelyn Davies BEd (geography and education, Homerton College Cambridge), 50s. Her first teaching job was at Cayley Primary School in Tower Hamlets, then arts co-ordinator at a ‘tough school’ in Lambeth (now closed), and then deputy head at South Wold Primary school in Hackney for the next seven years. By the time she arrived at Coldfall School, this head had definitely earned her stripes.

Originally from Bournemouth, she wasn’t au fait with Muswell Hill at the time and drove around first to get a feel for the area. ‘Many parts of Muswell Hill weren’t what they are today. I had been strongly advised against going for the job at Coldfall as it was a sink school at the time....I even found used needles in the playground.’ Not to...

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.
