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 criteria in which schools use to allocate places in the event that they are oversubscribed can and do vary between schools and over time. These criteria can include distance from the school and sometimes specific catchment areas but can also include, amongst others, priority for siblings, children of a particular faith or specific feeder schools. Living in an area where children have previously attended a school does not guarantee admission to the school in future years. Always check with the school’s own admission authority for the current admission arrangements.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on 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.

School Description

There is a strong community at the heart of this growing school. The school values of community, kindness, aspiration and resilience are lived out by pupils and staff. Staff take time to get to know their pupils well and relationships are positive. Great care is taken to make sure pupils get the support that they need to be successful. Pupils are safe here and trust that adults will take care of them. The school has high aspirations for all pupils. Pupils behave well and show respect for one another. They have many opportunities to have their voices heard and to contribute to key decisions. There is an active pupil council that has been able to enact changes in the school and lead on events, such as a successful ‘Culture Day’. Leaders have ensured that all pupils have access to the wide range of enriching experiences that are available in this central London location. Pupils are exposed to many different ideas through regular visitors such as artists, scientists and historians. Pupils are provided with the opportunity to learn instruments through their music lessons. A high proportion continue with individual lessons, with plentiful opportunities to perform.
