What the school says...
The Robert Fitzroy Academy opened as a brand new primary academy in September 2012 on the site that used to be the Davidson Professional Centre. We are embarking on an exciting journey and will open fully in a newly refurbished building in September 2013.
Despite being in its founding stages the school has worked hard to establish its ethos and core values resulting in a happy, vibrant learning environment where children are motivated to achieve.
The Academy is part of the REAch2 (Raising Educational Achievement for Children) Academy trust developed by Hillyfield Primary Academy in Waltham Forest. The Trust aspires to create a family of primary academies that have strong reputations for delivering outstanding education for all pupils. ...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.
