What says..

Lots of imaginative cross-curricular learning: displays everywhere are evidence of lively thinking and teaching.'Montpelier make their goals very clear.'  As socially diverse as any school in the capital. Around 65 per cent speak a language other than English at home – huge range of languages and cultures. Unusually strong music – 146+ learn an instrument in or after school. Not much room for slacking here ...

What The Good Schools Guide says

Co-headteachers

Since September 2023, following the retirement of the previous headteacher, Mrs Bracken and Mrs Garofalo, formerly deputy headteachers for 10 and five years respectively.

Entrance

Oversubscribed at all levels with the most applicants per pupil place in Ealing. ‘We moved to get into this school’, or ‘we appealed’ were things we heard from a few parents. High turnover among local international community means that occasional places at all stages are not uncommon, although this has slowed down somewhat with the opening of a new high school nearby, meaning more parents are staying rooted. All managed by Ealing LA and, if you have no special circumstances, you need to live up close and personal to get a place. We hear that more than a few families swap their large homes further out for flats round the corner...

Please note: 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.
