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 criteria in which schools use to allocate places in the event that they are oversubscribed can and do vary between schools and over time. These criteria can include distance from the school and sometimes specific catchment areas but can also include, amongst others, priority for siblings, children of a particular faith or specific feeder schools. Living in an area where children have previously attended a school does not guarantee admission to the school in future years. Always check with the school’s own admission authority for the current admission arrangements.

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.

Average Parent Rating


“State of the art facilities”


Can't get over how light and airy the school's new build is. It's so rare to see schools that are designed so cleverly - no matter where their classroom, children of all ages feel part of one community.
“Lovely school”


A lovely school - the teachers are very helpful and supportive, and provide so many varied learning opportunities for the children. There is a real sense of community for both the children and the parents!
“Very happy kids”


We have two children at Christ Church and very impressed with the school, teachers, staff and community. Our kids love going to school and we appreciate the caring, common-sense approach to their education and wellbeing. The school and teachers were outstanding during lockdown and the support provided to our children was above and beyond.
“Lovely community school”


Christ Church is a lovely friendly community school. I have 2 children in the school and both are thriving. The school and teachers makes great use of its location and local community to offer the children many additional learning opportunities and extra curricular activities.
