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

This is the school’s first inspection since it opened as an all-through Christian academy free school in September 2015. A charitable trust owns the school and includes founder members. The trust appoints and holds to account a board of directors that makes up the governing body. The school is affiliated to the Woodard Schools Group, which is a family of Christian faith schools. The school is smaller than most schools but is growing in numbers. It opened in 2015, admitting Reception children aged four and five, as well as the first cohort of key stage 3 pupils in Year 7. At the time of this inspection the school comprised pupils aged four through to 14 years (Reception, key stage 1 and key stage 3). The trustees and governors aim to establish an all-through school comprising five key stages, including a sixth form, by 2020. In September 2018, pupils currently in Year 2 will start the new key stage 2 in Year 3 and pupils currently in Year 9 will start the new key stage 4 in Year 10. There has been significant turbulence in staffing. The current principal designate has Inspection report: King Solomon International Business School, 2–3 May 2018 Page 13 of 16 been in post for two weeks. Trustees and governors are managing significant building and refurbishment programmes, which have been ongoing before and since the school opened. At the time of the inspection substantial building work was taking place. Pupils are now all being taught in the newly refurbished main building, having previously been in temporary accommodation on the school’s site. Most pupils are of Black British Caribbean and/or African heritage. Other pupils come from a wide range of backgrounds and heritages. Very few pupils join the school learning English as an additional language. The percentage of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is in line with that of most schools. A small number of pupils have education, health and care plans. Currently, no pupils attend any alternative off-site provision. The percentage of pupils eligible for pupil premium funding is well above average. There is nothing to report regarding national floor standards at key stage 2 or key stage 4 because there are no key stage 2 or key stage 4 pupils currently attending the school. The school receives a range of external support from other schools, trusts, higher education institutions and school improvement advisers. The school accommodates a breakfast club, which is managed by another organisation. This club is registered with Ofsted and will be subject to a separate inspection.
