School Description

Great Marlow School converted to become an academy school on August 1st 2012. When its predecessor school, Great Marlow School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good. This is a slightly larger than average secondary school with a small sixth form. Most students are of White British heritage. The proportion of students who are from minority ethnic backgrounds and the proportion who speak English as an additional language are both below average. The proportion of students eligible for the student premium is below the national average. The student premium is additional government funding to support students known to be eligible for free school meals, those in local authority care and students with a parent in the armed forces. The proportion of students supported with a statement of special educational needs or at school action plus is average. The proportion supported at school action is below average. The proportion of disabled students is below average. A very small number of students attend alternative provision at a local pupil referral unit on a part-time basis. Approximately one in nine students is eligible for the Year 7 catch-up programme. This is additional funding provided by government to support those students who did not achieve a Level 4 or above in either mathematics or English at Key Stage 2. The school works in partnership with other local schools in order to provide a wider range of sixth-form courses. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. This is a non-selective school situated in an area with a selective education system.

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.
