School Description

Coopers Technology College converted to an academy school on 1 March 2011. When its predecessor school, with the same name, was last inspected by Ofsted it was judged to be good. The school is larger than the average-sized secondary school, with a larger-than-average-sized sixth form. The latter is now housed in the renovated mansion house on site. The school shares its site with a special school; and students from there attend some lessons at Coopers. There are considerably more boys than girls, particularly in Year 10. The majority of students are from White British backgrounds. Black African students represent just under 6% of the student population, with other students coming from many different ethnic backgrounds. A below-average proportion of students speak English as an additional language, of whom only a very few are at an early stage of learning English. An above-average proportion of students is eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for specific groups, including looked-after children, students known to be eligible for free school meals and children with a parent in the armed services. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported through school action is just below the national average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is just above the national average. The most common needs relate to behaviour, emotional and social difficulties and other learning difficulties. The school rarely uses any alternative, off-site education provision. The school meets the government’s current floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. Since 2009, the school has hosted the Cray Wanderers Football Academy. The school is a member of the South East London Schools Alliance with six other secondary schools and is a key partner in the Bromley Schools Collegiate for the teacher training delivered in the borough.

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.
