School Description

St Brigid’s School is a voluntary-aided school situated in Denbighshire local authority. The school caters for learners between the ages of 3 and 19. Pupil numbers have increased by around 4% since the school was inspected in 2010. There are currently 510 pupils on roll with 83 in the sixth form compared to 491 at the time of the last inspection when there were 58 in the sixth form. There are 149 pupils in the primary department. The school is situated on the outskirts of Denbigh in a very attractive rural setting. It serves a large catchment area stretching from Llandudno in the West to the Welsh Borders in the East, and beyond Ruthin in the South. Around 6.2% of pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is below the national average in secondary schools of 17.4% and for primary schools, which is 20.1%. Around 7.7% of pupils live in the 20% most deprived areas in Wales. Nearly all pupils speak English as their first language and a very few are fluent in Welsh. There are 23 pupils who receive support teaching in English as an additional language. In general, the proportion of girls to boys is 60:40 but in key stage 4 there are significantly more girls than boys. While pupils in the primary department are of mixed ability, approximately half of the pupils in the secondary department are selected by means of an entrance examination. The percentage of pupils with special educational needs is around 27%, which is above the national average. The percentage of pupils who have a statement of special educational needs is 2%. The senior leadership team consists of the headteacher, one deputy headteacher and three assistant headteachers. The current headteacher was appointed as acting headteacher in 2013 and this was made substantive in September 2014. The deputy headteacher was appointed as acting deputy in September 2013 and this was made permanent in September 2014. The individual school budget for St Brigid’s in 2015-2016 is £4,332 per pupil.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil 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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
