School Description

Heath Park converted to an academy in December 2011. The predecessor school, Heath Park Business and Enterprise College, was judged to be outstanding at its previous inspection. The school formed a multi-academy trust, known as the Central Learning Partnership Trust. In this role, the school became the sponsor for Moseley Park, a neighbouring secondary school. Three primary schools have since joined the Trust. One is a local school in Wolverhampton, with the other two being schools in Rotherham. The school has its own headteacher, in addition to the executive headteacher who works across other schools in the Trust. Both are National Leaders of Education and the school is a National Support School and part of a Teaching School Alliance. Strategic oversight of the school is led by trustees of the board formed through the multiacademy trust. The school also has a group of governors, but their role is limited to oversight of the school at an operational level. Heath Park is a larger-than-average secondary school and has a large sixth form. The post-16 centre is shared with Moseley Park and operates as a consortium with four other schools. There are currently five students who attend alternative or off-site provision, all on a full-time basis. Three students attend the Orchard Centre (Home and Hospital Pupil Referral Unit), one student attends The Braybrook Centre (Key Stage 3 Pupil Referral Unit) and another student attends The Midpoint Centre (Key Stage 4 Pupil Referral Unit). One additional student attends a work placement on a part-time basis in addition to other school support programmes. Just over half of the school population are from minority ethnic backgrounds. The largest ethnic group is Indian, followed by Caribbean and White and Black Caribbean, which together make up about a third of the school population. Almost a quarter of students in the school speak English as an additional language. Just over half of the students in the school are supported by pupil premium funding, which provides additional government funding for students in local authority care and those known to be eligible for free school meals. There is an average proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs who are supported at school action. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also average. The academy meets the government’s current floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress by the end of Key Stage 4.

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.
