This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil 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 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

Lliswerry High School is an English-medium 11 to 18 mixed comprehensive school in Newport. Currently, there are 830 pupils on roll, including 111 in the sixth form. Around 30% of pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is well above the national average of 16.4%. Around half live in the 20% most deprived areas of Wales. The proportion of pupils that have a special educational need is around 30%, which is above the national average of 22.9%. Around 2.4% of pupils have statements of special educational needs. This figure is similar to the average of 2.2% for Wales as a whole. The school was last inspected in April 2013. The school has pupils from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. Nearly 40% are not from a White British background, and around a third of pupils speak English as an additional language. Only a very few pupils are fluent in Welsh. The headteacher has been in post since 2017. The senior leadership team is made up of a deputy headteacher, two assistant headteachers and two associate assistant headteachers.

Leaders at all levels are committed to supporting all pupils’ wellbeing and progress in order to help them reach their potential. The school’s support for pupils who have English as an additional language is particularly effective. In the majority of cases, teachers use their detailed knowledge of individual pupils to plan engaging, demanding lessons that help pupils to make sound progress. A minority of teaching does not provide pupils with sufficient opportunities to further their knowledge, understanding and skills. The school does not have a strategic enough approach to the development of pupils’ skills across the curriculum. Leaders monitor pupils’ progress and wellbeing carefully, and this has enabled them to make a positive impact on, for example, rates of attendance. Overall, leadership has not had a consistent enough impact on important aspects such as the quality of teaching and the standards pupils achieve.
