This pupil heat map shows where pupils currently attending the school live.
The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

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

The school is a larger than average secondary school, with a sixth form. The school became an academy in 2010. When its predecessor school, Kingsmead School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding overall. The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is over three times the national average. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is almost five times the national average. The school population is drawn from a wide variety of ethnic heritages and nationalities. The percentage of students for whom the school receives additional funding (the pupil premium) is almost double the national average. This is funding provided for students who are known to be eligible for free school meals, pupils looked after by the local authority, and those with a parent or carer in the armed forces. The proportion of students supported by the school who are disabled or with special educational needs is above average, although the number with a statement of special educational needs or supported at school action plus is just below average. The academy enters some students early for mathematics GCSE. The school has specialist status in visual and performing arts. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. Some students attend specialist courses at Additional Educational Solutions and Fresh Steps.

“A Really Great School”

unlock
"> This is the best school my child has attended. My son and his friend always argue about wether Kingsmead is better or Oasis Academy Enfield. In my opinion, I think that Oasis Academy Enfield is a really bad school and that Kingsmead is better. I'm really happy that I picked Kingsmead for my child's secondary school. Currently he's in year 9 and he tells me everyday about how happy he is to go to school. I think this is the perfect secondary school.
“Hopefully improvements can be made”

"> This was once one of the worst schools in north London until the previous headteacher, Mr Bird, took over and quite literally transformed the school into one of the top schools in London. Sadly he retired in 2007, and the school has gradually declined more and more each year, since the take over of current head. I've seen this school decline first hand having been a past student and sibling of current pupils. Something major needs to done to restore the education standards in this school.
