  • Children who live outside the catchment area but live closest to the school as measured by a straight line.

In cases of equal merit in each set of crietria, the priority will go to children living nearest the school as measured by a straight line.The distance, for admissions purposes, is measured using a straight line from the centre point of the home to the centre point of the school as determined by the National Property and Land Gazetter (NPLG). These distances are produced by the LA (Local Authority) Admissions Team for the school.  For families living outside the catchment area covered by the Cambs mapping system, distances are determined using a combination of local maps and on-line resources.
