On the council website you can check which school is your catchment area school.

Applications can be completed online (recommended) or through paper copies of the application form that is either submitted to the school, or sent directly to Ealing Council.


You can select up to 6 schools on the application and you must also provide proof of address and your child’s birth certificate.
