School Description

Malton School is a smaller-than-average secondary school with a small sixth form. The overwhelming majority of students are from White British backgrounds. A small number of students are from a range of other ethnic minority groups. The number of students with disabilities and those with special educational needs is much lower than found in most secondary schools. The number of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding to support students who are disadvantaged) is also well below average but is slowly rising. The school currently uses two alternative providers to extend the range of subjects the school can offer. Key Stage 4 students and sixth formers attend Derwent Training Association on a part-time basis to study engineering. A group of sixth formers attend, full-time, the East Coast Sports Academy to study sports. The school uses ROOSE (Ryedale Out of School Education) to support a very small number of students. The centre is a collaborative partnership with three other schools. The school receives school-to-school support as a partner within the Red Kite Teaching School Alliance. The interim deputy headteacher is part of this arrangement, as is the reducing level of support provided by the National Leader in Education from Harrogate Grammar School. The school meets the government’s floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress at the end of Key Stage 4 and the interim standards for the 16 to 19 study programmes.

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.

Malton School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Don’t go here if your child has a specific educational need”
"> It could be such a good school but it’s let down by the complete lack of support to kids who have an education disability. Even when a child has a Health and Education Plan, the school will not provide any dedicated resources. The approach is if the child does not put up his or hand and specifically ask for help then the assumption is that the child is doing well.
“Super School”
"> Super school. In my opinion, there is a great ethos towards both learning and PSE.
“Great school”
"> This school gives amazing help to those who need it but also keeps then working independently, giving them the life skills they need. The support staff are amazing. Overall: very good
“Don't bother if your child needs SEN care”
"> Don't bother if your son or daughter has an SEN. My Aspergers son went through a terrible time with anxiety attacks at this school, and we were not sufficiently supported by the Senco. I ended up withdrawing my child. Good luck if your child doesn't fit into a box.
