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

Melland High School converted to become an academy school on 1 August 2012. When its predecessor school, also known as Melland High School, was last inspected by Ofsted it was judged to be outstanding. The academy is part of the Bright Futures Educational Trust. The principal is a National Leader in Education and the academy is designated as a National Support School. It is a National Specialist College for cognition and learning. It is a placement school for the National Professional Qualification for Headship and is a provider of Initial Teacher Training. The academy leads on special educational needs within the Trust and is commissioned by Manchester local authority to provide support for other Manchester schools. The academy provides for students with severe and profound learning difficulties. Some have additional difficulties such as autism, emotional and behavioural problems, and sensory impairment. Around a fifth also has high dependency health care needs. All students have a statement of special educational needs. Around a half are of White British heritage with the largest other group being of Pakistani heritage. There are about twice as many boys as girls. Nine of the students are currently in the care of the local authority. The students come from the central and east areas of the city of Manchester. The government provides extra funding for students who are known to be eligible for free school meals, who are looked after by the local authority or who are children of families in the services, through the pupil premium. The proportion of students eligible to be supported by the pupil premium is well above average.
