We all know that school admissions depend on the distance from home to school, as measured by the Council's Geographical Information System.
Is there any way we can get an official measurement ourselves, as measured by this system, of the distance between a school and a home?
Google maps can measure distance in a straight line, and I'd imagine it would be a good approximation, but it won't be the official one.
Also, what exactly is the measuring point for a school? Some schools are on large sites, and choosing the centre vs a specific gate can make a big difference.
