This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil 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.

The school has strong pastoral and support arrangements. In general, pupils are well behaved, have high attendance and are courteous and respectful. Most pupils have positive attitudes to learning and participate enthusiastically in the wide range of extra-curricular activities offered by the school. Many teachers have purposeful and respectful working relationships with pupils, and teaching in a majority of lessons is effective in ensuing that pupils make suitable progress in their knowledge, understanding and skills. In a minority of lessons teaching does not meet the needs of all pupils sufficiently well. In a few lessons teachers do not have high enough expectations of their pupils and there is insufficient focus on developing literacy skills. The headteacher has a clear vision for an inclusive and supportive school and has made significant changes to the senior and middle leadership teams designed to strengthen capacity, consolidate the existing strengths in provision and support improvement. During this period of change, leadership has ensured that pupils’ wellbeing has remained a strength and secured good outcomes for vulnerable learners. However, leadership has not had sufficient impact on the quality of teaching, improving pupils’ writing and raising standards in key stage 4.
