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

There has been turbulence in leadership in the school over recent years. The new leadership team is now bringing some stability. Leaders have high expectations for the pupils in this school. However, these expectations have not been realised at this point. Leaders have an accurate view of the school’s strengths and weaknesses. They are taking the right steps to bring about improvement in the school. Leaders’ actions are already having some positive impact on pupils. Pupils demonstrate a strong understanding of diversity. They meet visitors from a wide range of faiths, cultures and backgrounds during the school’s diversity week. This helps them to understand about different groups in modern Britain. From as early as Reception, children are encouraged to think about what they might like to be when they are older. They learn about different careers through visitors to school, such as a local doctor and the police. Pupils in the school feel happy, safe and confident. Most behave well. They know how to be a good friend. They say that bullying does sometimes happen, but when it does adults sort it out quickly. Pupils know they can use the ‘worry corner’ or talk to a trusted adult if they are worried about something.
