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.

The school has a board of trustees with whom responsibility lies. There is a local governing body with specific devolved responsibilities.

Very few pupils speak Inspection report: Nunthorpe Academy, 27–28 March 2019 Page 9 of 12 English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils who are disadvantaged is broadly average.

Nunthorpe Academy Reviews

Average Rating:


“Deteriorated significantly”
"> This school's Ofsted rating was obtained under different leadership. In my opinion, the Head who has been in place for a number of years now has only made changes that have adversley impacted on our child. I agree with the previous review that bullying can be a problem and our impression as parents is that unless your child is a significant over achiever or a significant underachiever, they will not receive adequate attention.
“Not all it's cracked up to be”
"> Knowing what I know now about the school and its policies; particularly towards bullying I would never have sent my children there. The discipline is unequal depending many times on which house you are in or which teacher deals with issues on any given day. There are far too many pupils for the facilities and they have struggled to keep teachers which upsets the pupils learning. Older students struggle to find a place to sit and eat. Only the year seven students have a proper eating area. All in all the offstead does not reflect the true problems within the school. It needs to stop increasing admissions for funds and look after the pupils already in the school
