What says..

Children eased gently into school life with parents allowed to stay in the early days. Good support for the basics, too, with an informative ‘phonics workshop’ for those unfamiliar with the jargon. As well as the standard fare, there’s an arts week, art award, and involvement with a ‘working’ artist. School orchestra and choir (both after-school clubs).  Located on the site of what was once Muswell Hill Railway Station, there’s lavish outside space...

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headteacher

Since September 2018, Mandi Howells, previously SEN support consultant for Camden Learning and deputy head of Carlton Primary School, where she had taught since 1996.

Entrance

One of the most heavily oversubscribed primaries in the borough (approaching 600 applicants for 60 places). Having a sibling already at the school or living nearby are the two quickest ways through the gates, but ‘near’ means very, less than a quarter of mile if you want a realistic chance.

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.
