All users are advised to read the information below the postcode search bar and map when using the catchment finder, to check if they are affected.

Important information relating to own admission authority schools (Catholic schools, Church of England Voluntary Aided schools, Foundation schools, Free schools, Academies)

Some of these schools do not use a local authority designated catchment area, and so will not appear in this search. This can mean that your home address may not have a catchment school or that your home address is in the catchment area of more schools than those listed by this catchment finder.

To find the location of all schools in Hampshire, see our Find a School pages, where you will be able to search for schools, and refer to the school’s admission policy to see if your address is within the school catchment area.

More detailed information is available below the map, but please contact us if you have any queries.


Catholic schools

A list of Catholic Primary Schools who do not operate a catchment area can be found here.

Church of England Voluntary Aided schools

Some Church of England Voluntary Aided schools give priority to children living in a Local Authority designated catchment area. Others operate a catchment area that aligns with parish boundaries or refer to a much larger area based on the church ecclesiastical area. Please refer to the school’s admission policy to see how they prioritise admissions.

Academies, Free schools, and Foundation schools

Some Academies, Free schools and Foundation schools may have chosen to have a different geographical catchment area or no specific catchment area, which may affect your home address. Parents should refer to the school’s admission policy, which can be found here, to see how places will be allocated.
