I'm expecting my first child and know that London is a bit manic with school places. I'd like to put them down for 1-2 schools straight away just in case, and would love your thoughts on the following, or if there are any I've missed within easy travel of Wandsworth Bridge/Wandsworth Town area.
My main criteria is that I'd ideally like confirmation of a place as soon as I register, I really don't believe in assessments for such tiny children. Also how do you go about getting them into the relevant nursery, most admissions info seems to focus on reception. Is the best approach to phone the registrar in any case?
So - which of the below schools do not assess and offer firm places in order of registration, and what are your views of them? Are there any you can get away with registering when the child is older? Have I missed any?
