Belleville Wix catchment

Postby Mumandquestions » Wed Nov 06, 2019 10:30 pm

Hi all, I went on the Belleville Wix tour today and loved it. Trying to get my head around catchment though as they will be dropping back down to one form English entry September 2020 (I don’t think we stand a chance for the bilingual). We are 0.5 miles / 805 metres, anyone know if we would make the cut on distance? Their literature has catchments but that was for last year, two form entry. Huge thanks for any insight.

Hi,
My daughter waited 3 years for the bilingual stream, we used to live on Victoria Rise SW4.
Then my son got a place from reception as he already had his sister at Wix.
It changes every year, so worth trying.
They have always thrived at the school, I was really surprised by the last Ofsted report.

Good luck!

We also went to the open day, and the lady who gave us the tour, said that in August last year, they gave a place to a kid living at about 1800 m from the school. This year it will obviously be more difficult, but I guess it’s possible for your kid to get a place.

The school is still not that popular and many people don’t consider it because of the last ofsted report. Good luck!

Hi, we live 1600m away and recieved a place for my son in reception this year, in the first round of offers. This was the English stream. As someone mentioned, there are a lot of concerns over the last Ofsted report so fairly easy to get a place.

Same for us, we live about 1500m away and got in for reception English stream this year. We couldn't be more pleased with the school, it's great!
