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

Leaders of this school foster a ‘can do’ attitude in pupils and staff. Pupils are confident that they will succeed in life. Teachers are ambitious for pupils. The success stories of past pupils show that special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) need not be a barrier to pupils achieving their goals in life. Pupils love coming to school. They feel valued and say that staff listen to them and understand them. They told us that staff ‘respect us for who we are’. Pupils talked about how much they enjoy their learning. They told us that they have lots of friends in school. Pupils’ behaviour around school is excellent. They have a very positive attitude to their learning. Pupils say that they feel safe in school and there is very little bullying because staff will sort out any problems quickly. Parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about the school. They told us that their children are extremely well cared for. Parents also appreciate the wide range of activities in which their children can take part. This includes the summer school, after-school clubs, residential trips and drama productions. Parents also told us that all pupils are treated equally and can take part in all the activities on offer.
