School Description

The school is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. The school is ethnically very diverse. The largest groups are from Pakistani, Other White, White British and Black Caribbean background. There are more boys than girls. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is very high. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is below the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported through pupil premium funding is above the national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding to support those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or are looked after by the local authority. A number of pupils in Year 7 are supported through catch-up funding for pupils who did not achieve Level 4 in English or mathematics at the end of primary school. The school does not make use of any alternative educational provision off the school site. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. Since the previous inspection, there have been a number of appointments to leadership positions, including a new headteacher in September 2014 and a new deputy headteacher in January 2016. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.

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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

Leytonstone School Reviews

Average Rating:


"> It is a very good school and the teachers are dedicated. It could do better with added computer skills for children of all ages and I think a permanent extra lesson should be in place for all years. Technology is a way forward.
“Good school”
"> Despite what the Ofsted reports say, my child thoroughly enjoys going to this school, loves her teachers and wouldn't trade it even for a private school.
"> Not a very good school. Exam results were down this year more to do with the quality of some of the teaching staff, very high staff turnover. Also boys appear to do significantly worse than girls. In my opinion send your sons to Norlington, they stand a much better chance of being successful there.
