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

Ace Academy is larger than the average-sized secondary school. The school became part of the Education Central Trust in 2013. The headteacher took up post in September 2016 and currently works at the school for four days per week. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is above the national average. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is above the national average. Inspection report: The ACE Academy, 17–18 January 2017 Page 11 of 14 The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is above the national average. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is higher than the national average. The school does not meet the current government floor standards for 2016, which are the minimum expectations for progress at GCSE. The school meets the minimum interim standards for sixth forms. The school has an internal alternative provision centre for pupils whose behaviour needs greater support to enable them to be successful in the main school. The school uses five local alternative providers as off-site provision for a small number of pupils. These are Whiteheath, Cherry Trees, Albion, Dudley College and Startright. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The school complies with Department for Education guidance on what academies should publish.
