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

Pupils enjoy school. They think that their lessons are exciting and fun. Pupils love visiting the school’s big field to play, learn and explore. Through regular trips, pupils broaden their experiences. Leaders want the very best for all pupils. They have planned an exciting curriculum which captures pupils’ imagination as they learn and remember. Pupils are successful in their learning. This includes pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Through their many leadership roles, pupils are fully involved in school life. For example, planet protectors make careful decisions about how to reduce waste in school. Pupil wellbeing champions help leaders ensure that everyone is looked after well. Younger children learn how to care for the pet tortoise, Esio Trot. Pupils try their best in lessons. At playtimes, they play happily with their friends. Children in the early years move around the classroom areas calmly and safely. Pupils are proud of the medals that they earn for behaving well. Pupils feel safe and secure in school. They describe their teachers as kind and helpful. Pupils are confident that they can share any worries with adults in school. Pupils know that if any bullying should occur, their teachers would deal with it quickly.
