Dunstable catchment area schools (PDF 459.2KB)

Priory Academy and Lark Rise Academy do not operate a catchment area as part of their admissions oversubscription criteria. Therefore living in the areas as defined in the pdf above will not give priority for admission for these schools.

For the Dunstable and Houghton Regis area some schools have recently changed their age range or are consulting to do so, please therefore be aware that this may affect the catchment school.
