This school is much larger than the average-sized secondary school. Most students are of White British heritage. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is below average. A small percentage of the students is supported at school action. This proportion is well below national average. The proportion of those supported at school action plus or with statements of special educational needs is below the average. The school has a resource unit for students with visual impairment, currently supporting 7 students. A lower than average proportion of students is supported through the pupil premium which provides additional funding for students in local authority care and those known to be eligible for free school meals. The school meets the government’s current floor standards which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. The school uses part- and full-time alternative off-site provision for 12 students at local colleges and workplace providers. The school quality assures these institutions.

How have we plotted this map?

For this school, priority is given to children whose parents apply to their nearest school. We have calculated the area in which homeowners receive priority for this school based on postcodes and created a nearest school catchment area shape.

Within this catchment area, further priority is given to children living closest to the school and distance is measured in a straight line. We display a circular cut-off distance, the radius of which is the distance between the school and the home of the last child taking up a place in the previous year.

While the catchment area is predefined and applications from this area are likely to be accepted, the existence of the cut-off distance shows that not all applications from the catchment area were successful in the previous year.

School Guide provides this data as a guide to future admissions only. We recommend parents always check important catchment information with the relevant local authority and consider the list of higher priorities (SEN, siblings, etc.) before applying to a school.

See Catchment and Heat Maps for more information on the way geographical areas are used to allocate places when a school is oversubscribed.

How have we plotted this heat map?

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census. We calculate a likelihood of admission to a school from a given area based on this historical pupil data. Please see our methodology below.

Heat maps provide a useful indicator of general catchment areas but are not the same as a catchment area map published by the local authority. We are in the process of collecting this data and creating actual catchment maps for School Guide. Catchment maps are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas.

Methodology of a School Guide heat map

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official school pupil data taken from the School Census collected by the Department for Education. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July). We calculate a likelihood of being admitted to a school from a given area based on this historical data. Areas with a high concentration of pupils successfully admitted to the school are mapped as red (‘Very Likely’), quite concentrated (‘Quite Likely) and less concentrated (‘Less Likely’). This gives a good indication of the area a pupil would need to have lived in to be accepted to the school at the time of the last available data.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. They may mirror circular catchment shapes but do not show actual cut-off distances. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with sibling(s) 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.

Living at a postcode that returns a ‘Very Likely’ rating based on historical pupil data does not guarantee admission to a current or future intake and vice versa for a ‘Not Likely’ rating. A pupil’s location always needs to be considered alongside individual school admissions criteria (e.g. faith schools require pupils to satisfy religious criteria).

School Guide provides this data 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. We recommend parents check important admissions and catchment information with the relevant local authority. All contact details are provided under Local Authority Admissions Team.

See Catchment and Heat Maps for more information about the source of the data we use to plot our heat maps.
