Anyone familiar with this school and their enrolment process or with CoE schools in general, do the all tend to have the same criteria?

We live 5 mins away, we have attended a different church so far but I am thinking of starting to attend St Mary Abbots hoping we can get a place for our dc born in the summer of 2015.

It's a very popular and over subscribed school.
So - definitely, if you want it - you must move immediately. And - go and introduce yourself.
Get involved in any way you can - help around in Sunday school - be visible, etc.
Many, many people around here do that - to make sure they get places...
Living 5min away doesn't make a difference - first criteria is attendence, involvement.
Distance only matters for the few places allocated for non-church people...

Thank you for the great tips MMomDD, I had no idea how it works. We'll do just that and hope for the best.

Is that the school David Cameron's daughter went to? The one he lived two miles from with 15 other closer schools? If he can do it you can too OP.
