Hi all

Hoping to get some friendly advice as to whether amott road, se15 is in catchment for charter? Any responses appreciated.

It depends on how many sibling places are given and how many applicants live nearer than you.
You can contact the school or Southwark to find out the furthest distance for the last year or so

Have a look on locrating.com. But as Angelina says, it doesn't have a fixed catchment. Each year the number of applications, especially those from the 6 or so stipulated priority groups specified in a schools admissions criteria, will impact the last distance offered.

For the year 7 intake this September Amott would have been yes? whether it is in future years depends on reasons above

There are useful posts on 'school distances' in another thread called 'School Places' in the 'Family Room Discussion' board. This link may work: forum/read.php?29,2190091,page=4 . For the Sept 2022 intake, the longest distance offered on 1st March 2022 was 964m, which covers all of Amott Rd (I've just had a look using https://www.mapdevelopers.com/draw-circle-tool.php). The 964m should increase over the next few months (since not everyone that is offered a place on March 2022 will end up taking a place). And in future years it should increase further, since they will be accepting more kids per year, plus there are fewer young children living in East Dulwich / Peckham than there used to be. Personally I'm hoping that future years will have a much wider distance (1.3km? 1.5km?), and cater for East Dulwich more generally. Maybe even wider than that if demographics continue to change - e.g. our local primary school (Belham) used to have catchment areas of 300-400m, but now it's more than 1km!
