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

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Ricards Lodge is a larger-than-average-sized secondary school with a small, but growing, sixth form. The sixth form, known as ‘RR6’ is a shared provision with Rutlish School, another local secondary school in Merton. The school is a lead school in the Teach Wimbledon teacher training scheme. The Inspection report: Ricards Lodge High School, 31 October and 7–8 November 2017 Page 9 of 12 school manages the day-to-day provision for the trainees on the secondary programme. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is above the national average. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is in line with the national average. The school has a specialist resource provision, the Cedar Base, for pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities. The Cedar Base provides support for pupils’ speech, language and communication needs. There are currently seven pupils in the provision. They mainly attend lessons in the main school but receive support in the Cedar Base as required in their education, health and care plans. A small number of pupils are educated in alternative, off-site provision. This is through The Smart Centre, a local authority pupil referral unit. The school currently meets the government’s floor standards which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress by the time they leave school.
