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.

Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Linden Lodge accepts pupils from a wide range of local authorities in London and the south east. The school caters for children from the age of 2 to 19, though currently there are no children aged two or three on roll. Almost all pupils have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care (EHC) plan. Pupils all have visual impairment and many have other special educational needs and disabilities, including Inspection report: Linden Lodge School, 31 January – 1 February 2017 Page 10 of 13 hearing impairment, autistic spectrum disorders, epilepsy and cerebral palsy. Many children have profound and multiple physical disabilities as well as educational needs. The school has boarding provision on site for 40 pupils. This provision was last inspected in November 2016 and judged good. The provision was not part of this inspection. The school does not use any off-site training. The management of the school is in a state of transition. The principal has executive responsibility but the day-to-day running of the school is now the responsibility of the interim headteacher. The governing body is about to start the appointment process for a substantive headteacher. A clinical lead was appointed in September 2016 to work with both the school and the health authority. Just over a third of pupils are from White British families. Other pupils come from a range of other ethnic backgrounds. The largest other group is of Black African origin. Just over a third of pupils speak English as an additional language, though few are at an early stage of learning English. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium is slightly above average. The school holds a number of awards, including the Arts Mark Gold, the Safety Mark and Investors in People.
