This is my first time posting here so please let me know if I’ve put this in the wrong place!
We have just sold our apartment in Pimlico and are looking to move to Earlsfield with our baby, who is currently 7 months old. We are very new to the business of primary schools and catchment areas, which seems like a bit of a minefield!
From what I have read here, both Earlsfield Primary and Beatrix Potter schools seem to be highly recommended. But the catchment areas seem quite tight. Would you recommend trying to buy a property as close to one of these schools as possible, in order to maximise being offered a place? I realise this is a difficult question to answer as it depends on the intake for the year, but any general advice would be very much appreciated. We are really excited about moving to the area, but feeling a bit overwhelmed!
