School Description

The school is an averaged-sized secondary school. It is part of a federation with an 11 to 16 boys’ school on the same site. Each school has its own head of school, with an Executive Principal having an overview of both schools. The schools share a governing body. The Executive Principal was appointed in January 2010. Since her appointment, many staff changes have taken place. A new senior leadership team has been established, many middle leaders are comparatively new to post and a significant number of staff have left the school. Boys wishing to pursue their education past the age of 16 can join the girls’ school. Students from many other schools in the vicinity also join for sixth form education. The sixth form formed part of this inspection. The boys’ school was inspected simultaneously, but by a different team. Approximately one in four students is of White British heritage. There is a high proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds, the largest being Black British African. Approximately half of all students learn English as an additional language. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals, children who are looked after by the local authority and those with a parent in the armed services) is very high and virtually twice the national average figure. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported through school action is below average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is similarly below average. Students’ additional needs are wide ranging, with most relating to behaviour, emotional, social and moderate learning difficulties. Approximately one third of the students leaving the girls’ school at the end of Year 11 enters the sixth form. Attainment on entry is lower than might be expected given the school’s GCSE results. This is because many of the higher attaining Year 11 students undertake their sixth form studies at a variety of other locations across London. The school does not make any use of off-site alternative learning providers. The school meets the current government floor standards, which determine the minimum expectations for attainment and progress by the end of Key Stage 4.

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 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.

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