Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

Perseid School, formerly St Ann’s, caters for students with severe and profound learning difficulties. About a third of the students also have autism spectrum disorders. A minority of students have additional sensory impairments or behaviour difficulties. In 2011, the school opened a second site. This now caters for the older students, aged 11 to 19, and is a seven-minute walk from the main site. Students are mainly from the London Borough of Merton, with a small minority from neighbouring boroughs. About a third of students are White British and about a quarter are Black African. The other main groups are from White European, Bangladshi or other Asian heritages. The proportion of students who are eligible for free school meals is above average. All students have a statement of special educational needs. A few are looked after by the local authority. About a third of students speak English as an additional language and a few are at the early stages of speaking the language. Nineteen different languages are spoken by students’ families at home. There is Early Years Foundation Stage provision for children aged three to five in the Nursery and Reception classes.

Catchment information

020 8274 4901

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 last School 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 last 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.
