University Academy Warrington became a sponsored academy under the University of Chester Academies Trust in January 2013. The academy is much smaller than the average-sized secondary school. The number of students on roll is falling. The proportion of disadvantaged students, those supported through the pupil premium is broadly average. The pupil premium is additional funding for those students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. Almost all students are White British. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs is above average. The academy has a designated provision resource of 12 places for students with cognition and learning difficulties. Provisional data for 2014 shows that the academy meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. Six students access off-site education at New Horizons, a provider of alternative provision. The academy and the Trust is supported by St John Plessington Teaching School Alliance and its Executive Principal. A new head of school, seconded from the Teaching School Alliance, has been in place since September 2014. The newly formed IEB is led by a national leader of governance and provides both challenge and support for academy leaders in their drive for improvement.

How have we plotted this heat map?

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census. We calculate a likelihood of admission to a school from a given area based on this historical pupil data. Please see our methodology below.

Heat maps provide a useful indicator of general catchment areas but are not the same as a catchment area map published by the local authority. We are in the process of collecting this data and creating actual catchment maps for School Guide. Catchment maps are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of areas likely to admit pupils based on historical data. We explain how this could be helpful below.
  2. Use the link to the relevant local authority (above) to find detailed catchment information.
  3. On each school page, use the Website link to visit individual school websites and find information on their admissions criteria.

Methodology of a School Guide heat map

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official school pupil data taken from the School Census collected by the Department for Education. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July). We calculate a likelihood of being admitted to a school from a given area based on this historical data. Areas with a high concentration of pupils successfully admitted to the school are mapped as red (‘Very Likely’), quite concentrated (‘Quite Likely) and less concentrated (‘Less Likely’). This gives a good indication of the area a pupil would need to have lived in to be accepted to the school at the time of the last available data.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. They may mirror circular catchment shapes but do not show actual cut-off distances. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with sibling(s) 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.

Living at a postcode that returns a ‘Very Likely’ rating based on historical pupil data does not guarantee admission to a current or future intake and vice versa for a ‘Not Likely’ rating. A pupil’s location always needs to be considered alongside individual school admissions criteria (e.g. faith schools require pupils to satisfy religious criteria).

School Guide provides this data 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. We recommend parents check important admissions and catchment information with the relevant local authority. All contact details are provided under Local Authority Admissions Team.

See Catchment and Heat Maps for more information about the source of the data we use to plot our heat maps.
