School Description

Loxley Hall School provides for students aged 11 to 16 years with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. All students are boys. It offers residential provision, in two purpose-built blocks, as part of its educational provision. All students have complex needs, including autistic spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiant disorder and very challenging behaviour. Many experience other significant difficulties and social circumstances which affect their ability to trust adults and learn. All students have statements of special educational needs. A high proportion of students receive the pupil premium, the additional government funding for those eligible for free school meals or who are looked after by their local authority. A significantly high number of students are looked after by the local authority. Almost all students are from White British backgrounds and none speak English as an additional language. The school has high levels of student mobility. Students join at any time in their secondary school years, often as late as Years 10 or 11. Each year a number of Key Stage 3 students return to mainstream school before they reach Year 10. In September 2014, a Key Stage 4 annex opened on a new site. The school operates on a split site. The school increased its number of planned places to 96 in September 2014. Most students stay in the residential accommodation for up to two to three nights (on a rotating basis) to supplement their day-time education. All have an equal chance to experience residential accommodation. The school makes use of 15 off-site alternative provisions: South Staffordshire College; Highfields Farm; Burton College; Nova Training Brownhills; Nova Training Stafford; Independent Learning Centre Cannock; Sporting Stars Milton; Leek College; Leek Honeycomb Centre; Greenwood Studios Cannock; Walsall College; Multi Media Arts Project Walsall; Nacro Longton; Churnet Valley Steam Railway; and John Sewell Garages. These provisions provide a wide range of vocational and GCSE courses as well as extended work experience opportunities. The school became federated with Cicely Haughton School, a day and residential school for pupils aged five to 11 years with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties, on 1 May 2013. The governing body and executive headteacher are responsible for both schools. On the 25 September 2014 the school received its conversion order and is going to convert to academy status on 1 April 2015.

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 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.
