The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

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.

School Description

Pupils say that they feel safe at this school. They are confident that staff will help them, whatever their worries. Relationships between staff and pupils are strong. Leaders and teachers have a real passion for doing their best for pupils. Teachers and leaders have high expectations for what pupils can achieve. Sometimes however, pupils do not fully understand the key words that teachers use. This can limit their learning. Pupils say that work is sometimes too easy for them, especially in science. Pupils say that behaviour is continuing to improve rapidly. They say that the policies to manage behaviour are clear. Teachers will warn you, move you and then remove you from the lesson if you disrupt others’ learning. This helps lesson time to be calm. Pupils say that when bullying happens in school leaders listen and they sort bullying out quickly. Pupils enjoy their learning. Leaders are improving the curriculum. They are changing things this year, ready for a full launch in September 2020. Pupils will have more opportunities to study English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects to GCSE. Pupils are proud to be part of the school and talk very positively about the ‘Clifton way’. They are positive about the ‘Clifton pledge’. They value the experiences and opportunities that are available to them. Most pupils at this school make good progress. However, they do not attain as highly as their peers nationally. Leaders are working on this through curriculum improvement.
