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

St Gregory’s Catholic College is smaller than the average-sized secondary school and is a specialist college for the performing arts and modern foreign languages. Most students are of White British heritage. The proportion of students who are from minority ethnic backgrounds and the proportion who speak English as an additional language are both below average. The proportion of students for whom the college receives Year 7 catch-up premium and pupil premium is below average. This is additional funding provided for looked after children, students known to be eligible for free school meals and children of service families. The proportions of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported at school action or who are supported at school action plus and those who have a statement of special educational needs are below the national average. Since the last inspection the college was designated as a National Support School and the executive headteacher as a National Leader of Education (NLE). The executive headteacher is seconded on a part-time basis to St Mark’s Church of England School in Bath, where he has led an improvement programme for the past two years. The head of school leads St Gregory’s in his absence. At the time of the inspection, construction work was being carried out on a building which is due to open to a newly-created sixth form in September 2013. This is a part of the federation between St Gregory’s and St Mark’s, with a joint sixth form under the executive headteacher’s leadership. The college uses alternative provision at The Link special school for three students. A small number of students in Key Stage 4 attend off-site courses at St Mark’s School. These students are studying level 2 qualifications in product design, textiles, computing and business. The college exceeds the current government floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. The college has close international links with the Suzhou Foreign Language Schools in China and 20 Chinese students attend the college for two terms in Year 7. They have also developed strong cultural international links with Cordoba in Spain and the Comenius project which includes links with schools in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Turkey, Belgium and Germany, enabling students to travel to week-long conferences in these partner countries.
