This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The criteria in which schools use to allocate places in the event that they are oversubscribed can and do vary between schools and over time. These criteria can include distance from the school and sometimes specific catchment areas but can also include, amongst others, priority for siblings, children of a particular faith or specific feeder schools. Living in an area where children have previously attended a school does not guarantee admission to the school in future years. Always check with the school’s own admission authority for the current admission arrangements.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

Abbey Hill Academy is a kind and welcoming place. Pupils are safe and happy and enjoy coming to school. Staff know the pupils well. Relationships are positive. Pupils know there are trusted adults who will support them to learn and keep them safe. Staff have worked hard to change how they react and respond to pupils’ behaviour. This helps pupils to be more in control of their emotions. Leaders’ analysis shows that pupils’ behaviour has improved significantly as a result. Pupils are taught to be kind and respectful. The staff and pupils in ‘Team Happy’ ensure that friendships are encouraged and that everyone is made welcome. Bullying is rare. Pupils understand what bullying is and how it affects them. Any bullying that does happen is dealt with swiftly. Parents and carers and pupils agree. Leaders have high aspirations. However, this is not always seen in the order in which topics are taught. In subjects such as personal and social development, pupils study a range of separate modules that, over a year, do not sequentially develop their skills and knowledge. This means that some pupils are not learning the basic steps. Parents are positive about Abbey Hill. One parent reflected the views of the others when they said, ‘the children are supported in every aspect’.
