Schools and catchment areas

Designated or 'catchment' areas

Most schools have a designated or "catchment" area which has highest priority for admissions. However parents can apply for places at any school suitable for their child even if they do not live in this designated area.

Not all schools have designated areas. For example, the secondary Oakbank School, in Ryeish Green and Floreat Montague Park Primary School, in the Wokingham Town area will not be listed in address searches through the Primary School Designated Area Maps page.

Find your catchment area

Use our schools designated areas map to find out which designated or "catchment" area you live in. 

You can also use our find my nearest map to find schools close to you.
