As the deadline for parents applying for a September primary school place is upon us, it has been revealed that two schools in Gloucestershire have among the smallest catchment areas in England.

Coney Hill Primary School and Uplands Community Primary School both have catchment areas of less than 300 metres.

The two schools are also amongst 90 schools in the country that offer no places for children living outside the catchment area.

Data from the online service FindASchool shows that the smallest catchment area in the country belongs to Fox Primary School in Notting Hill, London with just 92 metres.

The data also revealed that the average cut-off distance for all oversubscribed primary schools in England is 1.4 miles, meaning that children living outside the small zone area are unlikely to receive a place.
