School Description

Hayesfield Girls’ School converted to become an academy on 1 August 2011. When its predecessor school, Hayesfield Girls’ School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding. The school is larger than the average secondary school. It accepts students of all abilities. The school meets the current government floor standards which set the minimum expectations for secondary schools. The vast majority of students are of White British heritage. Approximately a tenth are from minority ethnic groups. A very small proportion of students, less than half the national average, speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs who receive support at school action is slightly below the national average. The proportion of students who are supported at school action plus or who have statements of special educational needs, is less than half the national average. As part of the Bath Education Trust the school works in partnership with two universities, a local school and a college. As a result sixth form students have access to a wider range of subjects and a small number of Key Stage 4 students attend an off-site vocational course at the college. The proportion of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional funding for students known to be entitled to free school meals, children in the care of the local authority and those from service families) is below average. Currently there are no service family children or children in the care of the local authority on the school roll. Just over 20 students, who did not achieve the expected level in reading and/or mathematics at the end of primary school, are funded for the Year 7 catch-up programme.

Catchment information

01225 394312

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.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Excellent Sixth Form”
AUTHOR:
Our son went to Hayesfield for the Sixth form which is mixed boys and girls. He is dyspraxic and had previously attended a private school which had not supported him well. He left with quite poor GSCEs. Despite this, Hayesfield proved to be the perfect school for him and he achieved excellent A Levels and a place at Durham University. I cannot praise the school and what they did for him highly enough.
“Great school”
AUTHOR:
I went to this school and I thought it was great. The services and out of hours clubs they offered were always varied, therefore something for everyone. I enjoyed my time at Hayesfield. I think the improvements that have been made to the buildings over the past few years look fantastic and I can only imagine have raised the profile of the school itself in a number of ways.
