School Description

Colton Hills School is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. The very large majority of students come from a wide range of minority ethnic groups. The largest of these groups is composed of students with an Indian heritage. Less than a fifth of students are from White British backgrounds. Over three-fifths of students speak English as an additional language and of these an increasing proportion are at a very early stage of learning English. The proportion of students who join the school between Year 8 and Year 11 is higher than the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged students supported through the pupil premium (which provides additional funding for looked after children and those known to be eligible for free school meals) is above the national average. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs is above the national average. The school has specially resourced provision for students who have moderate disabilities. There are currently no students using this provision. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics at the end of Year 11. A very small number of students attend part-time or full time provision off the school site at The Lawnswood Campus, Wolverhampton and at the Orchard Centre, Wolverhampton. A very small number of sixth form students attend courses off site as part of collaboration with Heath Park School, Highfields School and Wednesfield High School. Since the previous inspection the school has appointed a new headteacher who took up his post in September 2013. There have also been a large number of changes in school staffing. The headteacher provides support as an interim executive board member of New Park Special School, Wolverhampton.

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 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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
