How have we plotted this map?

For this school, priority is given to children who live nearest to the school, measured by a straight line. No predefined catchment area exists but a circular priority area is created, the radius of which is the distance between the school and the home of the last child taking up a place in the previous year. The size of the cut-off distance circle will change annually and is different to a catchment area.

School Guide provides this data as a guide to future admissions only. We recommend parents always check important catchment information with the relevant local authority and consider the list of higher priorities (SEN, siblings, etc.) before applying to a school.

See Pupil heat maps and catchment FAQs for more information on the way geographical areas are used to allocate places when a school is oversubscribed.

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 maps. Catchment 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.
