Catchment information

Undersubscribed in 2015
020 8303 7777

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.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Deserves its Outstanding rating”
AUTHOR:
There are so many good things about Bexley Grammar from the point of view of transferring to secondary school. It has an innovative Y7 Diploma to encourage immediate engagement with clubs, House activities and the musical and sporting life of the school. It has an excellent academic reputation but also offers very good pastoral support. The Parents Association is active and welcoming. The music department is inclusive and offers excellence for everyone. The children are generally friendly and kind to each other and the staff are mostly very good indeed. The languages specialism permeates the whole curriculum, offering older students the chance to do work experience in France, and there are masses of trips on offer. ParentPay makes managing home-school communications easy and efficient, and entertaining weekly newsletters keep you up to date with what is happening in the wider school community.
