They make particularly strong progress in developing their literacy, numeracy, Welsh language and information and communication technology (ICT) skills and regularly apply these skills very well in combination during topic work. Most achieve very high levels of wellbeing during their time at school. They have a highly developed understanding of their rights and of the importance and value of diversity in society. Staff work very well in teams to provide pupils with highly engaging learning experiences that meet their needs and interests. They provide pupils with good opportunities to influence how and what they learn and enable pupils to have a wider say in issues at school that affect them. The school’s provision to develop pupils as informed citizens of Wales and the World is a particular strength. The headteacher provides outstanding strategic leadership to the school’s work. Staff in leadership positions are highly effective in their roles. The school’s leadership team successfully creates a climate where pupils and staff thrive. A powerful culture of continuous improvement ensures that the school makes consistently good progress in achieving its goals and particularly strong progress in implementing national priorities.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil Census (released annually in July).

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.
