School Description

Gordon’s School converted to become an academy on 1 January 2013. When the predecessor school, of the same name, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding. The school is a non-selective, state boarding school which offers boarding and day places for boys and girls aged 11 to 18 years. The boarding facilities were judged to be outstanding when they were inspected by Ofsted in February 2013. The school is supported by The Gordon Foundation, an independent charitable trust established in1885. The school is slightly smaller than most secondary schools. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority) is well below the national average. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs is 13.7% which is below average. Most students are of White British heritage. Small proportions of students are from Chinese, Indian or White and Asian ethnic backgrounds. The school offers alternative provision for a very small number of students in Years 10 and 11 within the Surrey Heath Area Partnership for Education, a local network of providers. These include Collingwood College, Kings International College for Business and the Arts, and Tomlinscote School. The school has recently joined the Salesian School Teaching Alliance as a strategic partner. The school meets the current government floor standards, which set the minimum levels expected for students’ attainment and progress.

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.
