This information shows the priority admission area school(s) for admissions purposes for children being admitted into schools from September (2021). You must check the individual school's admissions policy to establish what level of priority is given to children living in the priority admission area. There is no guarantee of a place for a child living in the priority admission area of a school.
Not all schools have a priority admission area. You do not have to live in the priority admission area of a school to make an application for it.
The information provided through this tool is solely in relation to school admissions and does not relate to the provision of home to school transport.
