Hi,

What was the lowest score offered last year?

Do they have a catchment area, if so what is the straight line distance.

I am assuming all schools use the straight line distance, which is different to driving distance?

Thanks

The school has its admissions policy on its website which details the catchment post codes. I couldn't find allocations from previous years but I presume they must be somewhere, either on the school website or the local authority website. Or you could ask the school?

Each school should detail catchments and describe how distance is calculated in their admissions policy or refer you the LA’s distance policy.

Not from your area so hopefully I’ve linked to the correct school.

The Herts School Directory looks to be one of the more user friendly examples of such things:

Re how distances are measured, the Queens policy helpfully includes this information:

Distance measuring and home addresses

Applications must be made from the child’s permanent home address at the time of application.
Measurements are made by Hertfordshire County Council who use a specialist software package to calculate them. A straight line’ distance measurement is used in all home to school distance measurements. Distances are measured using a computerised mapping system to two decimal places. The measurement is taken from the AddressBase Premium address point of your child’s house to the address point of the school. AddressBase Premium data is a nationally recognised method of identifying the location of schools and individual residences
