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.

School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Since taking up your post in April 2016, you, together with your leadership team, have developed a positive and nurturing learning environment. Leaders are honest and accurate in their self-evaluation and ambitious for pupils’ outcomes. Governors are proactive in supporting the work of the school and provide suitable challenge where appropriate. You are committed to ensuring that the curriculum meets the needs of the pupils and supports their future aspirations. You have made recent changes to the curriculum to ensure that there is greater breadth at key stages 4 and 5, as well as support and challenge at key stage 3. You were disappointed with the 2017 GCSE outcomes and, as a result, reflected carefully on them. You took appropriate action to ensure that key weaknesses were overcome, particularly in humanities, modern foreign languages and mathematics. This has been largely successful, but the progress of disadvantaged pupils, particularly boys, is not as strong as you would like it to be. At the previous inspection, leaders were asked to ensure that teachers plan tasks that provide learning at the right level for all pupils, particularly the most able. As a result, teaching approaches have been developed to provide suitable challenge. This has been particularly effective for students in the sixth form, who continue to make better progress from their starting points. To underpin the drive for continuous improvement, you have strengthened processes which support middle leaders to develop classroom practice effectively. Leaders at all levels are meticulous in their planning and are positive and conscientious in their work. Middle leaders are involved in the strategic planning of the school and value the regular interaction with the senior leadership team. New approaches which focus on the academic progress of particular groups of pupils have supported middle leaders to prioritise their work to good effect. Consequently, leaders at all levels share a common understanding of improvement planning priorities. They hold staff to account with a suitable blend of challenge and support in order to achieve these. Middle leaders share effective practice and whole-staff training is targeted and relevant. There is no doubt that you value highly the pastoral aspect of the school’s work. There are notable examples where actions show that leaders go to considerable lengths to provide support for pupils and ensure that exclusion is used as a last resort. You are rightly proud of ‘The Wave’, your on-site personalised learning and well-being centre. This is a highly effective provision that provides support for both academic and pastoral needs. Pupils value this and say that they have trust in the staff there. Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. Thorough employment checks ensure that newly appointed staff are suitable to work with children. Senior leaders remind staff regularly about safeguarding expectations and provide suitable training. Where there are concerns about pupils’ welfare, a suitably qualified team of staff ensure that actions are timely and effective. Records are detailed and outline a clear chronology of action and response. Leaders engage with external agencies as appropriate. Where they are not satisfied with the support provided by other agencies, leaders challenge them to help resolve referrals more effectively. The large majority of pupils say they feel safe in school and speak positively of the personal, social and health education they receive. They understand the importance of tolerance and respect, and recognise the value of diversity. This is reflected in the quality of relationships that exist within lessons and around the school, which are typically positive and respectful. The majority of parents and carers support the view that their child is kept safe in school. They value the care that staff provide, particularly when pupils make the transition into Year 7.
