School Description

The school is smaller than most secondary schools. The largest group of students are of Black African heritage, followed by any Other White and Black Caribbean. The proportion of students who are from minority ethnic heritages is high. An aboveaverage proportion of students speak English as an additional language, although few are at the early stages of language acquisition. The proportion of students known to be eligible for free school meals is above average. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs is slightly below average; most special needs involve behavioural, emotional and social difficulties as well as moderate learning difficulties. The school meets the current floor standard. The school is a specialist language college with sixth form provision shared with another local girls’ high school. Having operated on two sites 1.5 miles apart for the past 18 months, the school is set to move into its new purpose-built site as part of the Building Schools for the Future programme in two phases – one in April 2012 and the second in July 2012.

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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
