School designated areas

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead is now delivering its school admissions service through Achieving for Children, a community interest company set up in partnership with the Royal Borough of Kingston and the London Borough of Richmond.

The Admissions Team is now operating a call back service only. Priority will be given to calls where the information is not available on the website or in the relevant guides.

Every address within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead falls within the designated (catchment) area for certain schools. 

Braywick Court does not have designated area as it is a Free school.

Holyport College has a designated area for year 7 day places only.

Living in the designated area for a school does not guarantee your child a place at the school. However, it may give you priority over other residents as set out in the over-subscription criteria for each school.  Specific details about over-subscription criteria can be found in the relevant admissions guide which you should read before applying for a school place for your child.  These guides are listed below:

You can find the designated area for a specific address by using The Royal Borough Neighbourhood View or Neighbourhood Map online facilities.
