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.

School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2022. We give a summary star rating based on the last available data as a helpful indicator to parents. This is to be used as a guide only. You can view national level results including the percentage of pupils across Wales achieving the expected levels for the Foundation Phase (age 7) and at Key Stage 2 (age 11) here.

There is a very caring and supportive ethos, where nearly all pupils are happy and feel they are valued. All pupils learn about their rights, which helps them to support each other and to feel safe in school. They show a strong understanding of respect and tolerance, based on their knowledge of the values that the school promotes. Nearly all pupils behave very well and are polite and welcoming to visitors. Teachers provide interesting opportunities for pupils to relate their learning to real-life situations and this engages most pupils effectively in their tasks. As a result, most pupils make good progress with their learning as they move through the school. Staff have useful opportunities to learn from each other and from other schools. They share good practice in teaching and learning regularly. This has brought about improvements in the curriculum and to the school environment. Classrooms are inviting with colourful displays of pupils’ work and there are extensive outdoor areas to support pupils’ physical development well.
