School Description

Aston University Engineering Academy takes pupils from Year 10. It specialises in engineering and associated work-related learning. At key stage 4, pupils undertake a vocational curriculum alongside an academic GCSE curriculum. At key stage 5, most pupils undertake a BTEC extended diploma and a single A level. A small number of students do an A-level-only option. A small number of pupils are educated in alternative provision at St George’s School and the Cull Academy. The school does not meet the government’s current floor standard, the minimum standard for pupils’ progress at the end of key stage 4. Inspection report: Aston University Engineering Academy, 13–14 February 2018 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection Inspectors held meetings with the headteacher, other senior leaders, middle leaders and newly qualified teachers. They also met with the chair of governors and spoke with other governors on the phone. The views of pupils were evaluated through formal and informal meetings with pupils. Inspectors could not analyse results of the pupil survey because leaders did not give pupils the link to the online questionnaire. Parents’ views were evaluated through the 39 responses to Parent View, Ofsted’s online questionnaire, and the 34 free-text responses. Inspectors visited lessons to evaluate the quality of teaching, learning and assessment. They scrutinised pupils’ work, spoke to pupils about their learning and analysed teachers’ planning. Various aspects of the school’s activities were evaluated through the scrutiny of documentation, including assessment information, safeguarding and recruitment information, risk assessments and records of staff training.

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

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

  1. Look at our 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 last 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
