What says..

The school’s motto, ‘The best we can be’, is not a useless platitude, but something that they really aspire to for every child. As the head told us, ‘We teach our children dignity and respect and teach them to come to school ready to learn’. No time is wasted in helping and encouraging children who speak other languages at home to begin to speak standard English; ‘language is our bedrock because of where the different parents come from'...

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2015, Sarah Collymore (mid 30s); BA in primary education from Northumbria University. Went straight into teaching at 21 at a school local to her in Newcastle, but then decided to come to London with a friend and never looked back: ‘We visited at Easter to view some schools – St George’s being one of them. I rocked up one day, and 12 years later I’m still here.’ Hired initially as a teacher in early years, at the same time as her predecessor Janet Hilary (former head) - this irrepressible duo took the school from special measures and on the verge of closure to Ofsted outstanding.

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.

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.
