School Description

Carlton Academy is a smaller-than-average-sized secondary school with a sixth form. The school converted to become an academy on 1 September 2011. It is sponsored by the Redhill Academy Trust and has an executive principal who has oversight of the two academies which make up the trust. Carlton Academy also has a head of school who is charge on a day-to-day basis. The very large majority of students are White British and live locally. The remaining small numbers of students are from a wide range of minority ethnic heritages. The proportion of students who are believed to speak English as an additional language is low. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium is above average. The proportion of students supported at school action is higher than in most schools nationally. The proportion supported at school action plus or through a statement of special educational need is lower than average. Their needs range from physical disability to autistic spectrum disorder and behaviour, emotional and social difficulties. A small number of Year 10 and Year 11 students attend a range of work-related courses at local providers including, BTE, Thorneywood Base, Beckhampton, Wheelbase and 1st class Tailored Solutions. These are externally accredited courses such as hair and beauty and construction. These students typically access these courses once or twice a week and are taught in the main school for the rest of the time. The academy provides extended services such as study support and community access to its facilities. The academy has also recently started to work collaboratively with its partner the Redhill Academy to improve the range of courses available to sixth-form students. The academy meets the current government floor standards, which are the minimum levels expected for students’ attainment and progress at 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 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.
