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.

Average Parent Rating


“Very happy about the school”

"> I am very pleased with the school. My daughter is in her early years: she has attended nursery and now we're towards the end of the year of reception. She is doing very well and I am happy to see that teachers give her tasks tailored to her needs and capability keeping her challenged at the same time. I've seen the school constantly improving in these 2 years, from the facilities available for the children to the communication with parents. Being a small school, it allows parents to have a more personal relationship with teachers who are always happy to have a chat should you have any concerns about your child. I experienced a little personal issue with my daughter and they were very responsive and quick to support her. There is also a good choice of after school clubs and my daughter particularly enjoys Spanish. I know the school still suffers from a poor reputation of the past years. This is such a shame as lots of things have changed and are constantly improving. It's definitely a good and safe place for your children that I am happy to recommend.
“Happy school constantly improving”

"> I am absolutely delighted by my child's experience at this school; he has attended the school's nursery and he's now in reception, he absolutely loves going to school and its the after school clubs. The school is constantly improving, the head teacher is extremely proactive and enthusiastic making sure the improvements are tangible. The rest of the staff also seems to have the same positive approach and the pupils do seem happy, safe and settled. All in all the school feels like a happy and safe place for the children and the voice of the parents is always welcome and appreciated. It would be nice if more and more parents gave their support to the school and got involved with the school's initiatives.
