School Description

This is a broadly average-size secondary school. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of students known to be entitled to free school meals is well below average. About 12% of students are supported through school action, which is in line with national averages. Approximately 13% are supported at school action plus or have a statement of special educational needs. This figure is above the national average. A very small number of pupils attend classes on one day a week at a local college. Approximately 11% of pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding provided by the government). This proportion is well below the national average. The school meets the government’s current floor standard, which sets the minimum requirements for pupils’ attainment and progress.

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.

St Andrew's Catholic School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Real enthusiasm for teaching.”
"> Excellent. After the parents evening, I could genuinely feel that the teachers wanted for the children to achieve and go forward. There was real enthusiasm, and my daughter is lucky to be taught by people that want her to succeed.
“Fantastic school, happy Mum”
"> Fantastic school. 3 children there, all different academic levels. All get the support they need to achieve. Fantastic pastoral care, teachers give feedback & hugely motivate my children when needed. I truly wish Mr Mitchell was head when I was secondary school age.
“Amazing School!”
"> This school is brilliant, the staff always go above and beyond! Both of our children have made huge progress in ALL subjects, as a parent I always feel communication is uplifting and respectful- feel blessed to part of the school community.
“Outstanding School”
"> An outstanding school, with clear & ambitious leadership. Children do well at the school & have access to good selection of co-curriculum subjects. My children were previously at private schools and I feel I am getting a signifantly better education. The school is results focused & is strict, which may not suit every child. Overall, I think it is amazing for a non-selective school.
“St Andrew's - an opinion”
"> If your child is academic then he/she will thrive and be nurtured and pushed but if not... Then he/she will still be pushed and over-faced. The pastoral care is nil. In my opinion, bullies who are achievers are acceptable as it is results that count over and above anything else. It is just a grade machine and little thought is given to the fact that pupils are actually young human beings.
