I'm really interested in Our Lady of Grace primary school in Charlton, Greenwich, for my son, who is due to start school in a couple of years.
We are out of the catchment area of this school but just for a few meters. I've been looking at the admissions criteria and he is baptised and I attend mass every Sunday so religion shouldn't be a problem.
My only worry is the catchment area. Does anyone know if baptised Catholic children from practising Catholic families who are *not resident* in the catchment area get a chance in this school? Or to be offered a place you really have to live close to the school?
It would also be great if you have experience in this school to let me know your general opinion.
Thank you very much for your help.
