What says..

As far as we could tell, this was a London-accent-free zone, and all the pupils we met were chirpy, well-spoken, well-mannered and quite delightful. 'Is it friendly here?' we asked as we moved about the school, and group after group gave us an instant and emphatic 'YES!' The Anglican faith is central to the school's ethos, and plays a greater part here than we've seen in any other C of E primary school. Even competitions can be devotional in nature, with the winning entries in…

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since September 2023, Adrian Corke, previously headteacher at Bishop Perrin CE Primary School. Educated at Gunnersbury Catholic School For Boys in Brentford and the University of Portsmouth, where he read geography and economics, followed by a PGCE at the University of Leicester.


Two-form entry, so 60 reception places each year. Usual admissions criteria: looked-after children, medical needs, siblings. Thereafter, at least one parent must be a 'committed and regular worshipper' at one of the three Kew Anglican churches (St Anne's, St Philip & All Saints', St Luke's); after that, it's down to proximity. Rather convoluted - if in doubt, contact the school office. School is oversubscribed, but not dishearteningly so. Also worth applying further up, as much of the Kew community is professional and mobile, and occasional places do become available.

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.
