This is always a hot topic, so I thought a summary of what the distances were for last year might help. I asked the Council and here is the data they have given me - this is the furthest distance away from each Wandsworth primary school that children who were offered places at them lived (for children admitted on distance criteria alone i.e. not siblings).

It does seem that the real competition for places is confined to the area around Northcote Road, with 232m and 274m for Honeywell and Belleville respectively (although Allfarthing, Albermarle and Sheringdale also had tiny areas).
