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

Pupils, parents and carers, and staff talk happily about being part of ‘one big community’ in which relationships are positive and supportive. Parents are clear that they ‘wouldn’t send their children anywhere else’ due to the sense of care and support their children receive. This includes creative opportunities to support pupils in their learning, such as reading with Morgan, the school dog. Staff have high expectations of pupils and what they can achieve, and they rise to meet these especially well. Pupils are proud to demonstrate the school values of ‘community, compassion, forgiveness, generosity and hope’. They live out these values, know their importance and are proud to earn stickers and headteacher’s awards that recognise when these values are embodied. This is a highly inclusive school and pupils are clear that everyone is welcome. Pupils feel safe and happy here. Behaviour around the school is consistently calm and orderly. At social times, pupils play well together and take turns. They are creative in inventing games that involve their friends. They benefit from a range of leadership opportunities, including being worship leaders, language leaders, equality ambassadors and members of the school council.
