School Description

For too long pupils have been let down by the poor quality of education provided at this school. Leaders, including governors, do not fully recognise how poor the quality of education is for pupils. They have been too slow to act and failed to improve deep-rooted weaknesses in key stages 3, 4 and 5. Pupils do not learn well enough in almost all subjects, including English, mathematics and science. Pupils’ examination results are consistently far lower than those of others nationally at the end of Year 11 and Year 13. Far too many pupils do not attend school regularly. This hampers their achievement. Many pupils behave well at break and lunchtimes. However, some are boisterous. Staff are usually at hand to calm things down and keep order. Pupils’ behaviour varies from class to class. Pupils’ attention is taken away from learning where there is low-level disruption. Pupils say that they are well cared for, from Year 7 to Year 13. They feel safe. Pupils know who to turn to with any concerns. Bullying is rare, and leaders deal with it well. Pupils are friendly and kind. They say that this is a school where everybody fits in and is welcome. Many pupils take part in and enjoy the wide range of extracurricular activities on offer.

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.
