London Schools Atlas

The London Schools Atlas is an innovative interactive online map providing a uniquely detailed and comprehensive picture of London schools, current patterns of attendance and potential future demand for school places.

The Atlas is part of the Mayor's programme of initiatives aimed at driving up standards in education and ensuring there are enough places for all children in the city. Find out about school places in your borough at the London Schools Atlas.

Covering primary and secondary provision, including academies and free schools, the Atlas uses data to illustrate current patterns of demand for school places at a pan-London level for the first time, rather than within boroughs alone. It also gives projected changes in demand from 2012/13 to 2017/18, helping provide an indicative picture of where pressure on places might be in the future.

The Atlas is an open and accessible tool for anyone engaged in meeting the challenge of providing good school places for all, including local authorities, free school groups, academy chains, policy makers and commentators.

For parents and children it offers the most vivid insight yet into the educational options for their family, in their locality and wherever else they may consider living in London. It covers only state schools so all the places shown are free to those enrolled at the school, although every institution does have its own entry requirements and admission process.

The London Schools Atlas provides data on both primary school and secondary school places.
