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 like to come to this happy school each morning. Attendance is high. Staff model the school’s values, and are caring, respectful and friendly. Pupils feel safe and secure here. They told me how everyone is kind to each other and say bullying hardly ever happens. Staff sort any problems out immediately, in a fair way. Pupils told me how they can speak to staff if they ever get worried or upset. Pupils are also keen to attend because lessons are challenging and interesting. Children in the early years go to West Farm Lodge, and to the jungle on a safari bus. Pupils in Year 1 visit the National Space Centre to find out about Tim Peake. Pupils receive a good, wellrounded education at Higham Ferrers. Teachers teach them phonics in fun ways so that they are keen to show how well they can read. They learn that, for example, if 3+5=8, so must 5+3. Staff want the best for every pupil. Pupils are expected to be well behaved in lessons and around the school, and they are. They complete the ‘Rainbow of Confidence’ each morning and learn to be thankful for every day.
