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.

Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

The school’s values of ‘inspire engagement, build relationships, increase communication, promote independence and encourage resilience’ are truly at the heart of everything the school does. The colourful triangles that represent these values can be seen all around the school, and pupils try their very best to live up to them. Pupils love their school. Their engagement and sheer enjoyment in learning are wonderful to see. Pupils experience invaluable, exciting opportunities to learn about the world around them. Staff enable pupils to be as fully prepared for their future lives as possible. Parents and carers, and, wherever possible, pupils are included in all decisions about the future at the earliest possible stage. The school’s successful ‘bubble behaviour ethos’ illustrates clearly the consistent approach adopted throughout the multi-academy trust. This positive, proactive and preventative approach works very well. All staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. Staff are highly skilled and know pupils extremely well. Routines are consistently followed, reducing anxiety for pupils, and allowing them to understand what is expected of them. Consequently, pupils behave exceptionally well and the school is a very calm place to learn. The non-judgemental, supportive community that leaders strive for makes this school a warm, nurturing, inclusive environment of which everyone is rightly proud.
