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.

Most pupils make good progress in improving their literacy, numeracy and information and communication technology (ICT) skills as they move through the school. Nearly all pupils with special needs, including those on the two learning resource bases, make strong progress from their individual start points. Nearly all pupils are independent learners who are resilient and cooperate well with each other. Members of the school’s pupil groups have a very strong and highly influential voice within the school. They play an important role in improving the school experience for other pupils. Teachers plan stimulating and relevant learning activities that help pupils develop as responsible global citizens. The school provides exceptional support for pupils with special needs. The headteacher and deputy headteacher provide the school with outstanding leadership. They set high expectations for others and are positive role models in how to achieve this. The headteacher ensures that the work of the school focuses on high levels of wellbeing and improving teaching and learning. He plays a key role in developing other leaders at all levels effectively.
