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

Pupils are happy at this school and say that they feel like they are part of a family. This is because Odessa is a caring and inclusive school where all pupils are nurtured. Leaders and staff know the pupils well. They make sure that pupils are confident and happy in their lessons. Teachers support pupils’ personal development effectively. Pupils say that bullying is rare, but if it does happen, it is dealt with quickly. They trust the staff and know that they can talk to any adult if they have a problem. Pupils behave well. They are polite and courteous to visitors and are enthusiastic when talking about their school. Leaders make sure that teachers plan interesting lessons across a range of subjects. All pupils are encouraged to aim high. They try hard in lessons and are excited about their learning. They have lots of opportunities to improve their communication skills, for example through discussion. Pupils who spoke to me enjoyed talking about what they were learning and the clubs they attend. Pupils have regular opportunities to learn about and celebrate events from different cultures. Examples include Diwali and Chinese New Year. These opportunities help pupils understand and respect people with differing beliefs and customs.
