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

Nottingham Academy is an improving school. Pupils have different experiences depending on which phase of the school they attend and which teachers they have. Not all teachers have high expectations of pupils. The quality of education in the early years, primary school and sixth form is stronger than in the secondary school. The quality of education at key stage 4 is not consistently good. There is more to do to ensure that all pupils achieve as well as they should. The culture of the school is welcoming and inclusive. Most pupils are happy and say they are well looked after by staff. They recognise the improvements that are taking place. Most pupils say that, although some incidents of bullying occur, they are confident that staff will sort issues out quickly. Pupils say they feel safe in school. They also say, however, that, sometimes, antisocial behaviour from some pupils affects their enjoyment of school. Pupils appreciate the range of extra-curricular opportunities that are available. For example, pupils participate in many sporting activities, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme and charity work. They are particularly proud of their involvement with the neighbouring ‘Wildcats’ basketball academy. Leaders ensure that all pupils learn about the risks to their well-being in school and in the local community.
