Applying for a school place
Distance is only one of the criteria used to award school places. You are not guaranteed a place at your nearest school.
Distances to schools outside Sutton may be approximate. Please check with other boroughs for more accurate distances.
Before applying for a school place, read the guidance booklets for Starting Primary School or Starting Secondary School. These explain each school’s admissions criteria and how the admissions process works.
