School Description

The school is larger than most secondary schools. Almost three quarters of the students are from White British, Irish or Other White or Mixed White backgrounds. The proportion from minority ethnic groups is above the national average, as is the proportion of students who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of students eligible for the pupil premium and Year 7 catch-up premium is well above the national average. The government provides additional funding to support these students because they are at particular risk of underachieving. Around 5% of the students are disabled or have special educational needs. The proportion of students who are supported by school action is above the national average The proportion of students who have special educational needs and are supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational need is above the national average. All provision for students on alternative programmes is arranged by the school in conjunction with the Borough’s 14−19 development team. The school shares its sixth form provision with Sydney Russell School, Eastbury School and Dagenham Park Church School. Together, these four local secondary schools make up the Southern Consortium. The school works with partner organisations, including its local primary schools, to share best practice and develop a learning experience that helps students to achieve well. The school has strong international links with schools around the world including in Africa, America and Europe. It has been awarded International Schools Status and is aspiring to become a Teaching School. The school is to be awarded a Quality Kite Mark in June 2013 in recognition of the extensive range of over sixty extra-curricular clubs and activities it offers. In addition to the summer school and Easter revision school, students are able to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Enterprise Education activities and the rich range of arts projects which form part of the many programmes available to them. The school exceeds current government floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.

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 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 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.
