School Description

Graveney School is a mixed 11–18 secondary school. It is one of the largest secondary schools in the country, with 1,970 students on roll. Most students in Year 11 choose to stay on into the school’s sixth form. This is significantly larger than most other secondary sixth forms nationally, with over 700 students on roll. Graveney School converted to become an academy on 1 August 2011. When its predecessor school, Graveney School, was last inspected by Ofsted in May 2011, it was judged to be outstanding overall. The Graveney Multi-Academy Trust was formed in April 2013 to incorporate one local primary school. It is a Leading Edge school and a prominent partner in the Wandsworth Leading Edge partnership. The school is led by a Principal and a headteacher, supported by a large team of experienced senior leaders. The students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have very diverse ethnic heritages. The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is significantly above the national average. More than a quarter of students do not have English as their first language, resulting in over 50 different spoken languages in the school. Just below one quarter of students are eligible for pupil premium funding. This is additional funding provided by the government for disadvantaged students. This is broadly in line with the national average. The percentage of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is below the national average. The academic profile of students coming into the school in Year 7 is higher than the national average. A very small number of students attend the Wandsworth Pupil Referral Unit for alternative provision. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set out the minimum standards for students’ attainment and progress.

Catchment information

0208871 7316

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.
