School catchment areas 2022/23


All Catholic schools and some Church of England schools, Free schools and Academies in West Sussex have either a parish or deanery related catchment area, or no specific catchment area. As these schools do not use a local authority catchment area they will not appear on this search.

To find the location of all schools in West Sussex, see Find your nearest local school.

To find local authority catchment area schools:

  • enter your postcode or the first line of your address in the 'Search' box
  • select your address from the list
  • zoom out (-) on the map to view catchment area boundaries - these display as a red line for primary schools and a purple line for secondary schools
  • select 'More info...' on a school shown below the map to find out about it.

Be aware that some catchment areas will change for 2022/23, so the current 2021/22 catchment for some primary schools in Chichester will be different.

The areas that are changing are shown in the document Admissions arrangements main changes 2022 (maps). Please contact us if you are looking at primary schools in Chichester and have any queries or you cannot use the map.
