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.

Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

High Park is a rapidly improving school. Staff have a very good understanding of pupils’ complex needs. They provide pupils with exemplary levels of care. Pupils are happy at the school and are safe. They build trusting relationships with staff and are keen to come to school. Pupils benefit from exceptional levels of support for their emotional health and wellbeing. This helps pupils to regulate their own behaviour. During their time at the school, pupils gain a strong sense of who they are and how to interact with others. There is no evidence to indicate that bullying ever happens. Staff focus on preparing pupils for life after school. Pupils benefit from a broad range of opportunities to enhance their personal development. Pupils take part in many opportunities to learn away from the school site. For example, pupils go swimming, and some run a café in the community. Staff have high hopes for all pupils. Pupils are helped to become more independent as soon as they join the school. Older pupils spend much of their time preparing for adulthood.
