School Description

The school converted to become an academy in April 2011. When its predecessor school, also Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, was last inspected by Ofsted it was judged to be good overall. Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School is an average sized 11–18 school. The school selects from the top 25% of students. Approximately one in 20 of the school’s population is known to be eligible for the pupil premium which is additional funding for children in local authority care and those known to be eligible for free school meals. This proportion is well below the national average. The numbers of disadvantaged students in Year 11 in 2014 were too small to report on their achievement separately. There are no students eligible for the Year 7 catch-up programme, which supports those students who have not previously reached the expected levels in English and mathematics. Most students are of White British heritage. There are a few students from minority ethnic groups or who speak English as an additional language. Very few students are disabled or have special educational needs. The school liaises with another local school, The Abbey School, to extend the range of sixth form courses available to students in both schools. As these arrangements are new, too few students attend this partner school to report separately on their attendance and achievement The school enters students early for GCSE examinations in some subjects. The school meets the government’s current floor standard, which is the minimum expectation for students’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 11. The school holds Thinking School status, and a number of awards including Investors in People, Investors in Careers and the International School award. The headteacher is a local leader of education and staff from the school support a number of primary and secondary schools locally.

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.
