School Description

The school opened as an academy in January 2011. The predecessor school, of the same name, was last inspected in October 2007, when it was judged outstanding. Pupils join the school having taken the 11+ exam. The school draws pupils from 70 primary schools over a wide geographic area. The school increased its admission number in Year 7 from 128 to 150 in 2015, and then from 150 to 160 in 2017. The school is a member of the South West Academic Trust, which is a group of grammar schools located in the South West of England. The school’s sixth form has been run jointly with another local school in recent years. This arrangement will cease at the end of this academic year. The school uses one alternative education provider, GUL equine therapy, for parttime provision. Inspection report: South Wilts Grammar School for Girls 22–23 October 2019 5 Information about this inspection We carried out this inspection under section 8 of the Education Act 2005. We deemed the inspection a section 5 inspection under the same Act. Inspectors met with the headteacher, senior leaders, subject leaders and teachers. The lead inspector met with the vice-chair of the governing body and 10 other governors. English, mathematics, science and history were considered as part of this inspection. In each of these subjects, inspectors met with the curriculum leader, visited lessons, spoke with pupils and considered their written work. Inspectors scrutinised the school’s policies relating to safeguarding, spoke with the designated safeguarding leader and considered records of the preemployment suitability checks that the school makes on its staff. Inspectors asked many pupils for their opinions about safety, behaviour and bullying. Inspectors carefully considered the school’s response to safeguarding incidents in the past.

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.
