School Description

The school is a harmonious community. Pupils respect the rights of others. They mix together well and have no concerns about bullying. Pupils understand the importance of helping others to keep safe and keeping themselves safe. They know who to go to if they are worried about something. Pupils are very keen to learn. Attendance is above national levels. In lessons, pupils are often inspired by the passion for the subject shown by their teachers. Pupils work hard, think for themselves and enjoy grappling with problems together. They sustain concentration well. There is rarely any low-level disruption to interrupt their learning. Leaders and teachers have very high expectations of pupils. Most pupils meet this challenge and achieve very well across the curriculum. Some pupils need more help in order to reach the high targets set for them. Pupils benefit from a vast array of opportunities to enrich their education. Pupils take part in local and national activities such as mathematics and science competitions and theatre festivals. Many pupils also enjoy a wide range of clubs and sports teams. Many pupils willingly take on responsibilities in school.

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 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 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.

Barton Court Grammar School Reviews

Average Rating:


“A great school”
"> I have 2 children at this school, and they couldn’t be happier. They are thriving in a caring, friendly environment. They are getting great grades, and don’t feel pressured at all. They’ve made super friends too. We are very happy with our (and theirs) choice to send them to Barton Court.
“An excellent school.”
"> An excellent school that builds balanced and happy individuals. Our boys got the marks to go to a super selective but chose Barton instead. He has grown to be respectful of women, able and driven but not arrogant. The school has excellent teachers, facilities and method of teaching.
“My son is very happy and confident at Barton Court GS, excellent teaching team”
"> My son is extremely happy at Barton Court GS. Teachers and administrators are clearly making students confident and they have very well established appraisal system, very encouraging. I can easily put this comment on because I'm also a senior lecturer and administrator at University, I'm highly qualified to criticise any educational institution. So far BCGS has made us very happy.
“Avoid Barton Court”
"> In my experience as a parent, this school is only bothered about results not your child's emotional wellbeing. They are unsupportive of children's needs. Pupils get detentions if their grades are not high enough. Quick turnaround of staff. Please read other online reviews. This school will not help your child.
