When distance to nearest school is critical

Where the nearest school is less than 0.2 miles from the next nearest school and distance is either:

  • Part of the school’s admissions criteria
  • Affects your child's eligibility for free school transport

we recommend that you request a definitive calculation. 

To do this, please email and provide:

  • Your full address, including postcode
  • The full URL for the results of your Find my nearest school search

You can then discuss the distances and how this will impact on your application for a school place / transport.
