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 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.

School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You and your leadership team have sustained ongoing improvement by swiftly identifying areas for development and employing effective strategies to secure success. As a result, the majority of pupils are now making good progress in most subjects and areas that were weaker are now improving. You have maintained a consistent focus on robust and regular assessment and improving the quality of teaching and pupils’ progress. You have been successful in improving pupils’ progress by making sure that each pupil receives targeted support which is centred on their needs. This is a particular strength in Years 10 and 11 and you have rightly prioritised developing this approach across other year groups. As a result, teachers are able to modify their planning and support interventions that more effectively meet the differing learning needs of all groups of pupils; an area for development from the previous inspection. You have redesigned the curriculum so that it provides a range of subjects and options that better fit pupils’ needs. In addition, you have established clear expectations that ensure that staff implement this curriculum in a highly effective manner. You recognised that your previous curriculum had limited the progress of some pupils, particularly disadvantaged and lower-attaining pupils, in areas such as languages and humanities. This change is having a positive impact on the progress that current pupils are making. The innovative sixth-form curriculum and the strategic links with partner schools are meeting students’ needs effectively. As a result, progress in the sixth form is also improving, particularly in academic subjects. Your strong leadership has been further supported by the focused leadership the school receives from Delta Academies Trust. The trust’s systematic approach to deploying directors to support pupils at your school is a strength. The impact of this support can be seen in the progress that pupils are making. The education advisory board recognises the role that the trust has played in bringing about significant improvements. Through your vision for the school you have developed an ethos of high expectations. You have implemented a new behaviour policy and this is having a positive effect on the culture of the school. Pupils value and show respect and tolerance for each other, your staff and the building. They are rarely off task in lessons and say that everybody is treated equally. As a result of your higher expectations, the number of fixed-term exclusions has increased, particularly for boys. You recognise that this is something your leadership team needs to address. Leaders have demonstrated strong capacity for improvement, as shown through higher attendance figures for nearly all groups of pupils. Safeguarding is effective. You ensure that safeguarding at the school is effective through clear processes and procedures that staff and governors understand, including those new to the school. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and records are detailed and of high quality. Leaders know pupils and their families very well, which results in pupils feeling safe and happy at the school. Pupils are confident that staff will deal effectively with any problems they might have. Leaders deal swiftly and effectively with any incidents and concerns. The school has effective referral procedures and communication with external agencies is strong. This means that information is shared effectively and in a timely way. The school has a strong knowledge of particular risks that pupils may face and leaders plan for this. This is effective as pupils say that the school makes them aware of how to keep themselves safe against potential risks such as domestic violence and child sexual exploitation. Leaders have worked effectively to increase pupils’ attendance year on year, particularly for the most vulnerable pupils. Staff take attendance seriously and investigate all absences to make sure that pupils are safe. Inspection findings Current data suggests that outcomes for disadvantaged and lower-attaining pupils in humanities and languages are improving as a result of regular assessment and systematic intervention. You were rightly concerned about these groups of pupils and recognise that improvement in this area is a challenge for the school. The trust provides invaluable support to raise standards in these areas and leaders recognise that the support from trust directors is leading to improvement. Leaders have also made changes to the curriculum and provide more effective advice and guidance to pupils when they are making important choices about the subjects they are going to study. As a result, the progress of current pupils in key stage 4 is improving. However, pupils’ learning and progress is not consistent across all year groups and the quality of work produced over time is also inconsistent. Leaders know that the best practice seen in English and mathematics needs further embedding in humanities and languages. Leaders and the inclusion team work collectively with each pupil to support them and their families. As a result, attendance is improving and levels of persistent absence are now in line with the national average, particularly for disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. In 2016, the attendance of these groups of pupils was significantly below the national average and levels of persistent absence were high. However, leaders now use a range of strategies, including the ‘Nurture Programme’ and ‘The Base’ to support pupils with their specific behavioural and learning needs. This is having a positive impact on the attendance of these groups of pupils and the progress that they are making. You have intensified the impact of support by deploying teaching assistants to particular departments. This is leading to more effective planning that addresses the demands of subjects and the needs of pupils. This is having a positive effect in English, mathematics and science but is less developed in areas such as humanities. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is strong, particularly in English and mathematics. Leaders have reviewed and redeveloped the English curriculum with a cohesive teaching plan for Years 7 to 11 and you regularly review the texts studied to improve the motivation of boys. Regular use of ‘hinge assessments’ is helping you to identify pupils who require further support and highlight common misconceptions. Teachers in these subjects give pupils the tools to recognise what makes a good piece of work and pupils spend prolonged periods of time reflecting upon and making improvements to their work. As a result, the progress that pupils make in English continues to be strong and there is a much smaller difference between the progress of boys and girls. The leader of mathematics is working closely with you and the Head of English to replicate these successes for all pupils in mathematics. The leadership of the sixth form is strong and the head of sixth form works relentlessly across the sixth-form partnership to improve standards. In 2016, the progress of students on A-level courses was significantly weaker than those studying applied general courses. Leaders have become more effective in providing the best curriculum for students and in advising students about appropriate courses. This is resulting in significantly stronger progress in A-level subjects. Teachers are using this close partnership to support each other during a time of qualification reform and to improve the quality of teaching and learning in all subjects. Teachers are beginning to ensure that the reflective time given for students to improve the quality of their work is now a larger part of A-level lessons. You are right to prioritise this as students who study vocational courses told inspectors that the time they are given to respond to feedback is a key to their success and to the strong outcomes they achieve.
