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 enjoy their time at school. They feel safe and well cared for. Pupils say that bullying is rare, but know to tell an adult if there are any problems. They are polite and show respect for each other. Older pupils look after younger pupils at lunchtime and include them in their games. Adults have high expectations for how pupils conduct themselves in and around school. Pupils respond well to this. But there are not always high expectations for what pupils can achieve in their lessons. This means that some pupils do not do as well as they could do in their learning. Pupils appreciate the many clubs that the school offers. They enjoy visiting places such as the local fire station. Pupils told inspectors how they enjoy learning the violin and French. They also say they would like to spend more time learning about other subjects such as physical education. Children in the early years get off to a great start. As pupils move through the school, lessons are not planned as well as they should be. This means that pupils do not learn the knowledge and skills they need in many subjects, including reading.
