Distance measuring service
For academy, foundation, free or voluntary-aided schools that are their own admission authorities, we offer a distance measuring service to provide accurate and consistent distance measurements of all children applying for your school. This enables your school to rank every application in line with your admission arrangements.
We calculate the distance using a computerised system based on ordnance survey coordinates. These are calculated as a straight line measurement between the geo-code of the pupil’s home address and the geo-code of the school.
Distance measuring does not consider walking, cycling or driving routes
The service is priced based on number of applicants
|Number of applicants||Cost|
|0 to 100||£40|
|101 to 200||£75|
|201 to 300||£110|
