School catchment areas

Each school in Sheffield has a designated catchment area from which it admits its pupils. Your home will be within one of these geographical areas, defined by your postcode and house number.

Living in a catchment area does not guarantee a place at that school. 

If you can't find your postcode on our maps, for example if you live in a new housing development, 
contact us.

Church schools have their own faith based criteria for admissions.

Appeals and oversubscribed schools

Your child's year group may already be full at their catchment school. If so, you can still apply for a place but you will have to submit an appeal.
