School Description

Rutlish School is an above-average-sized secondary school with a specialism in mathematics and computing. The school shares a joint sixth form with a neighbouring girls’ school on both sites. The sixth form was opened in 2010. Almost a third of students are of White British heritage, with a small but significant number of Pakistani, Asian and African students. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is well above national averages. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported by school action is above national averages. The proportion of students supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is in line with national averages. The majority of these are for behaviour, emotional and social difficulties, specific learning difficulties and speech, language and communication needs. The proportion of students in receipt of the pupil premium, which provides additional government funding to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children who are looked after by the local authority and children from service families, is above average. Currently, there are two children from service families and very few in local authority care. Approximately one fifth of Year 7 students are eligible for the catch-up programme for students who did not achieve the expected level in English at the end of Key Stage 2. A small number of students attend alternative provision off-site programmes at the Smart Centre in Morden and Education Excellence in Croydon. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.

Catchment information

020 8274 4901

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.
