Hi, I'm moving into Camden/ probably Hampstead and am looking to purchase a property sufficiently close to a good State maintained primary (children not of reception age yet, but am planning for the future). New End Primary looks like a good bet. I'm aware of the admissions policy and lack of formal catchment areas, but am wondering how close you need to be to stand a good chance of getting in under the distance criteria. 1km? 500m? 100m? across the road?

I got offered a place there and I live near the Royal Free. I know people who go there from Belsize Park and Camden, but I suppose it depends on the year. people also go over from Kentish Town/Tufnell Park, but I don't know if they lived there when they originally got the place.

That's very interesting, Do you mind if I ask you what you think of the school?

I didn't visit it I'm afraid - I got offered my first choice in the end. However, afterwards I did regret not visiting it and not considering whether to send ds there because it has such a good reputation. Since then I have met lots of people with children there who think it's brilliant. my reservation about it was that for my ds (who is supersensitive) I thought it was too big, but I'm not sure now whether this is really an issue.

It has a great reputation around here. You could also try Fitzjohns which is supposed to be good and I think Christchurch (?) but that might be CofE. There's The Rosary if you're Catholic.
