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.

“Ignore the Ofsted rating: this school is good!”

unlock
"> A great Primary school offering structured learning for children aged 3 to 11. Beautiful grounds and teachers who care about the school and its pupils. There is a good anti bullying procedure in place. This year it is my understanding that around 15% children pass the Bexley 11 + exam. My daughter loves this school.
“A really good school with a clear vision”

unlock
"> Lessness Heath is a really lovely school with a welcoming atmosphere and a clear focus on success. I have seen first hand the way that the children are engaged so that they adopt a mature attitude towards learning, whilst actually, having a really good time doing it. Recommend.
“Fine School”

unlock
"> Lessness Heath is a fine school. A few children are absent, at least 1 in each class every day, Toilets are not hygienic and doors are broken. Not all lessons are taught such as cooking. Sometimes there is bullying happening around school, sometimes not even in Break or Lunch. Children are not that happy attending this school, in my opinion.
