In the event that any category is over-subscribed priority will be given to applicants in order of geographical proximity to the school (priority being given to the children who live closer to the school). The governing body will use Northamptonshire County Council’s GIS computer system to determine the distance between the applicants address and the address point of the school. Distance measurements are carried out using a straight line basis.
