The school is a larger-than-average secondary school for students from Years 7 to 13. Most students are White British. Heart of England School converted to become an academy school in July 2011. When its predecessor school was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good. It is not linked to a wider trust and uses the services of the local authority. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is above the national average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is in line with the national average. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (the additional funding provided by the government for looked after children and students known to be eligible for free school meals and others) is below average. An increasing proportion of students join the school other than at the usual starting times. A small number of students attend work-related courses part-time, off the school site, at Solihull College and CTC Kingshurst Academy. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.

How have we plotted this pupil heat map?

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 Admissions Team (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 and catchment FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data. We also explain the difference between our pupil heat maps, cut-off distance maps and catchment area maps.
