How it works

Use our school guide and distance calculator to check your chances of getting in


School popularity

Find out how many applications a school received for each place and how this has changed over time.

  • Check how demand has changed over time
  • Find out how many places were taken by siblings
  • See how offers were made for different preferences

Distance calculations

Easily check the distance from a property to nearby schools. Schools that we know use walking distance to prioritise admissions automatically calculate the shortest walking route.

  • Automatic property to school distance calculations
  • Shortest walking route calculations
  • Change home location and the distance recalculates

“Exactly what I was after - now I don’t have to guess where our next home will be and stress all the way up to admissions day! Thank you!”

Catchment area maps

Note: Catchment data is only available up to 2020 and for some areas.

See how a school’s catchment area has changed over time. We use cut-off distance data from local authorities and schools to calculate the catchment area in a given year. Find out more in our guide to how catchment areas work.

  • See how catchments have changed over time
  • Check the shape of priority admission areas
  • Check catchment data availability before purchase
