The criteria will be applied in the order in which they are set out below:

3. Students in the defined catchment area: in the case of oversubscription, geographical location will be used as a tie breaker. Distance will be measured in a straight line from the child’s home to the entrance of the Principal’s office with those living closest being given priority.

4. For students who live outside the defined catchment area, priority will be given to those who live nearest to the school. Distance will be measured in a straight line from the child’s home to the Principal’s office.
