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.

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 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.

The headteacher has developed a very supportive and hardworking staff team, who show commitment to the school and its pupils. Leaders and governors work together purposefully and are prepared to embrace new initiatives and make changes to develop the school further. The school provides a safe, happy and caring learning environment, which supports pupils’ personal development well. Across the school, pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. Teachers provide pupils with a wide range of innovative and stimulating learning opportunities, which effectively engage most pupils to succeed and give of their best. Nearly all pupils make good and, at times, very good progress as they move through the school. Those who have additional learning needs receive very good support and also achieve well in relation to their targets. Pupils’ communication skills are particularly strong, and they apply their literacy and information and technology skills effectively in a range of contexts. Numeracy across the curriculum and pupils’ Welsh language skills are less well developed.
