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

This is a larger than average girls’ secondary school. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is high. Almost half of the pupils attending school are White British, with the next biggest group being from other White backgrounds. The rest of the school is very diverse, with no other group being of a significant size. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is high. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability or have an education, health and care plan is below national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by pupil premium funding is in line with national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding to support those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children that are looked after by the local authority. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. Since the previous inspection there have been a number of appointments to leadership positions, including a new headteacher in September 2015.

“FANTASTIC SCHOOL”

unlock
"> I think this a FANTASTIC school. Girls are so polite and aspirational! The Headmistress has done a amazing job. My DD loves her school and the stimulation she gets from her superb teachers.
“VERY HAPPY”

unlock
"> My daughter loves it. She's made lots of friends and is motivated to do well.
“NOW IS THE TIME TO JOIN”

unlock
"> Take a look at the 2015 Dept for Education Performance tables. The school beat both Ashmole and Mill Hill County on the 5* A-C measure (the standard measure). Here's the even better news: the new Headteacher is on a mission to drive standards even higher. She joined in Sept 2015 and has already "tightened up" the school. For those parents worried about stretch the Maths dept offers level 3 algebra as well as GCSE at year 11. Languages and humanities are a real strength. The school also has a strong creative edge with huge drama productions and a really high profile product design dept . The best way to judge a school is to visit it for yourself. My daughter has just started and loves it. The girls are polite, articulate and lively. There is an earnest quality about them and a desire to learn. There are lots of clubs to join and activities to keep your daughters stimulated. Before she entered year 7 I was a little wary about sending my child to an all girls school but now she is there I have no doubt it is the right place. Her younger sister can't wait to join.
“DON'T THROW AWAY YOUR FUTURE”

unlock
"> This is a good school if your child is of average intelligence and of little ambition. They will fool you with highly-inflated predicted grades and reassurances that "you will be fine!" but do not believe them. The teaching standard is so varied it is hard to believe they work at the same school. The school is all inclusive and caters for all students, so if you love being able to wear trainers to school (genuinely allowed in the rules as long as they are all black) and hate learning, then this is the place for you.
