What the school says...

Our school, Winton Primary School, is situated in the heart of London near Kings Cross station. The regeneration of the area makes it an exciting place to live and work and we hope Winton Primary reflects this in its passion to help children make their mark in the world.

Our school provides a safe, friendly and stimulating environment in which children can develop a life long love of learning. From Nursery to Year 6, the children enjoy an exciting curriculum with an international dimension that reflects the diverse nature of our community. We take part in many out of school activities and use libraries, museums, adventure centres and the local area to enrich the learning of our pupils.

We are committed to providing up to date facilities and an inspirational learning environment, despite the constrictions of our Victorian buildings. Our new sports hall, built on the roof of the old building, allows us to enjoy a wide range of sports both in school and as after school clubs, as well as being available to hire by local sports groups. The children use a wide range of up to date ICT equipment to enhance their learning in every area of the curriculum.

Our breakfast club and after school clubs provide top quality extended school services and are available to all children.

Our wider school community is extremely important to us and we have links with many local business organisations including The Guardian. We run lots of events and classes for our parents and carers both to support their own learning and support the learning of the children.

Take a look at our website and I hope you and your children have a great time making their mark at Winton!

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.
