School Description

In May 2011, Gonville Primary School became Gonville Academy. It is led by the headteacher who is also executive headteacher of one other school in the Striving Together for Excellence Partnership, and supports a third. The governing body now also manages after-school provision as well as a breakfast club. Gonville Academy is larger than the average primary school. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is higher than the national average. The majority of pupils are of minority ethnic backgrounds; the largest groups are of Caribbean, African or Pakistani heritage. Approximately half of all pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils receiving support at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below the national average. The academy has achieved a range of quality marks and awards including accreditation by Investors In People, Healthy Schools, and UNICEF (as a Rights Respecting School), and for inclusion, information and communication technology, and basic skills. It has the Activemark, Bronze Art Mark, holds the International Schools Award, and is a Fronter Champion School. The academy meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for attainment and progress. During the time of inspection, the academy was having an arts week.

Catchment information

020 8726 6400

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 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.
