School Description

George Spencer Academy is larger than the average-sized secondary school. It converted to become an academy in September 2010. When its predecessor school was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding. The large majority of students are White British, with an average proportion from minority ethnic backgrounds. Of these, the majority come from other White backgrounds, with a handful from a variety of other ethnic groups. Few students speak English as an additional language. The proportion of students supported by the pupil premium, which is additional funding for students in local authority care, and those known to be eligible for free school meals, is below average. The proportion of students who are disabled, and those who have special educational needs, is also below average. The academy meets the government’s floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 11. A very small number of students attend off-site alternative provision at Stone Soup and Real Education. The academy provides support to other schools as the lead school in The Spencer Academies Trust, a multi-academy trust comprising six primary and three secondary schools, including this one. The Principal is a local leader of education, and the Executive Principal is a national leader of education. The academy has seven specialist leaders of education in English, modern foreign languages, mathematics, science, special educational needs, behaviour and teaching gifted and talented students. The academy is a link and partner school for the Institute of Physics and a lead school in the network of excellence in computer science teaching. The academy is a National Teaching School, and the lead school in the George Spencer Teaching School Alliance. It holds Leading Edge status and is the Mathematics Hub for the East Midlands West. The George Spencer SCITT leads a network of schools offering schools direct and provider-led routes for primary and secondary teacher training. The academy is a licence holder for leadership development programmes and collaborates internationally with the Department for Education in Victoria, Australia.

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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
