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 last academic year at this school has been a turbulent and unsettling one for staff and pupils. There have been high levels of staff absence. This has compounded the persistently poor progress made by pupils in subjects such as English, mathematics and science by the time that they leave Year 11. Leaders and teachers do not have high enough expectations for pupils’ academic success. Most pupils said that they feel safe in school. However, vulnerable pupils do not receive the support that they need quickly enough. A few pupils said that there are occasions when they do not feel safe. This is because of the poor behaviour of others. That said, behaviour has improved significantly since September 2019. Pupils reported that there is some bullying in the school and that inappropriate language, such as that which is homophobic, is heard. Even so, most pupils said that inappropriate language and bullying are dealt with appropriately. Students in the sixth form fare better than those in key stages 3 and 4. Provision in this part of the school is improving due to better leadership. Students do particularly well on vocational programmes. Pupils can attend a range of extra-curricular clubs for performing arts, languages, music, art and sport.
