School Description

Redbridge Community School is a larger-than-average secondary school serving the Millbrook Estate in Southampton. The school houses Southampton City Council’s specialist provision for hearing-impaired pupils. There are currently six pupils on roll in this provision. The school has its own provision, known as EduK8, which caters for pupils who need additional support to be successful in education. The number of pupils attending this provision varies from day to day. There are slightly more girls than boys at the school. The percentage of pupils who are disadvantaged is well above the national average. Most pupils are of white British heritage and speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils who receive support for their special educational needs and/or disabilities is well above average. Inspection report: Redbridge Community School, 30–31 January 2018 Page 10 of 13 The proportion of pupils who have an education, health and care plan is above the national average. The school serves a community which has above-average levels of deprivation. The school meets the government’s current floor standards. The school meets the Department for Education’s definition of a coasting school based on key stage 4 academic performance in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Pupil heat map key

023 8022 3855

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.

Redbridge Community School Reviews

“Parents review of first year at Redbridge”
"> My daughter has just finished her first year at Redbridge and in my experience I would highly recommend it to any parent. They have a great email system whereby if you have any problems you can email tutors subject teachers year heads and even the headteacher. I've had to contact all these people over the last year and not for negative reasons I might add. Everyone of them has got back to me within 24 hours and has taken my concerns and questions seriously and welcomed me to contact them if there is anything else I need to know. The communications between the staff is exceptional and every child is treated as an individual and supported for who they are strengths and weaknesses. I would like to add that I chose this school as it was recommended by at least 5 other parents and so far from my own experience and seeing my child thrive academically I can't recommend it highly enough.
“A great school”
"> I attend Redbridge community schoolat the moment and it is amazing. It's fun but hard working. Every school have bullies but the teachers sove it in a matter of days. I have learned amazing things and will do for another year. I highly recommend this school to anyone, I have never had a problem at this school ,all you have to do is be good and work hard; and the teachers and students will respect you.
“A pupil's experience”
"> I went to this school from 2000-2005 and personally, it pretty much killed my confidence. Bullying happened so much to me and a lot of other people I knew not only from pupils but from teachers. The male PE teachers were horrible. Once I was bullied and went to the teacher for help and was told to go away. Another I said hello and called him by his second name and was told that only his friends call him that and, considering most kids called him that, it hurt. I once had a maths text book thrown at me from the other side of the room to which I cried in pain and the teachers did nothing. I only had a few teachers I could go to if I needed them and they were from the music department and the librarian. Honestly, if you're looking for a safe school for your child avoid this one because like me by year 10 I gave up on school eventually and don't feel I benefited from being there at all. I suffer mentally even now when I think back to it. Also would give no stars but can't.
