What says..

At first glance this looks like a typical Victorian primary school. It even has the original boys' and girls' entrances. Inside you will find polite, happy children in smart red, white and blue uniforms. A bilingual stream has been introduced into the reception class and is making its way up through the school. In the bilingual class, around 15 per cent of the week is spent speaking French, and this proportion increases by year group so that by the last year…

What the parents say...

A wonderful community school with a bilingual (French) influence. Both my sons love this school I love that all their friends come from Putney’s local community. The staff and children are friendly and support my children to be the best that they can be. This school really is Putney’s best kept secret!

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headteacher

Since January 2017, Sarah Martin.

Entrance

The nursery class admits 36 full and part time children each year. Reception class of 60, including bilingual class.

Waiting list for places in most year groups, which is an indication that someone is doing something right, considering four state primary schools in very close proximity, one of which is virtually next door. Admissions policy is administered by Wandsworth local authority so out of head's hands.

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.
