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

Leaders and staff want all pupils to achieve well. They make sure that pupils throughout the school can read, write and use numbers successfully. This is improving pupils’ achievement. The teaching of some other subjects such as history and geography is not as effective. Pupils are friendly and well mannered. Pupils say that their teachers are ‘kind and fun’. They appreciate that staff, ‘help you when you need it’. In this positive environment pupils work hard and are keen to learn. Pupils enjoy discussions, for example when learning about different family groups. They show respect for other people’s beliefs and opinions. Leaders carefully choose visits, events and after-school clubs to help pupils develop the qualities that pupils need to succeed in their adult lives. Pupils explained how these experiences also help them to learn more. For example, pupils could confidently describe the features of Tudor homes after visiting some historic buildings in the town. Pupils feel happy and safe in the school. They can talk about ways in which they stay safe, including when online. Pupils say that bullying is rare. Pupils say with confidence that the adults in the school will help them with any concerns. They say that adults sort out any disagreements quickly.
