School Description

Coombe Boys’ School is a smaller than average-sized comprehensive school. The school federated with Coombe Girls’ School in 2006 to form the Coombe Secondary Schools Federation. The schools have the same governing body and executive headteacher and converted to academy status in February 2012. The Coombe Boys’ School sixth form is a joint sixth form with Coombe Girls’ School. The provision for male and female students on roll at the boys’ school is mainly Level 3, and some Level 2, vocational courses, with access to AS courses at the girls’ school. The school has strong professional links with a local independent school, through a leading edge partnership. The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is above average. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is also above average. The proportion of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals, looked after children and service family children) is in line with the national average. There are very few looked after children and no children from service families currently at the school. About 20 students are eligible for Year 7 catch-up funding which is for students who did not achieve the expected levels in reading and mathematics at the end of primary school. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs who are supported by school action is below average; the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also below average. The number of students joining the school after the start of Year 7 is much higher than average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. A very small minority of students attend off-site, alternative provision as part of their educational programme. This is at Kingston College and Malden Oaks Pupil Referral Unit. The school was awarded Investors in People status in 2013.

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 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.
