This is a smaller-than-average sized academy which caters for students aged eleven to eighteen. It is sponsored by Teesside University (the lead sponsor), Redcar and Cleveland Council and Prior Pursglove College. Almost all of the pupils are of White British backgrounds. Very few pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is broadly average. Currently, half the students are disadvantaged and therefore eligible for support from pupil premium funding. This is much higher than the national average. This funding is for those students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority. The academy meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics. A purpose-built Enterprise Centre, designated as a regional hub for the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy, accommodates a small, but growing sixth form. No students are currently entered early for a GCSE examination. Close to one third of each year group in Years 10 and 11 attend off-site alternative provision on a parttime basis, together with a small number of Year 9 students. This is provided by East Coast Training, Prior Pursglove College, Redcar and Cleveland Training Services and the Eston Centre (EOTAS). The academy has experienced a large turnover in staffing in the past twelve months. Senior leadership was strengthened in September 2014 with the appointment of two deputy principals.

How have we plotted this pupil heat map?

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 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 last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Admissions Team (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 and catchment FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data. We also explain the difference between our pupil heat maps, cut-off distance maps and catchment area maps.
