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 flourish at this happy and harmonious school. They are immensely proud to be part of such a caring and welcoming learning community. Pupils live and breathe the school’s vision and values in all that they say and do. They are happy and very well cared for by staff. The school has an unwavering ambition for its pupils in terms of their academic achievement and their wider personal development. Pupils, including those with special educational needs and or disabilities (SEND), work hard and strive to meet these high expectations. Typically, pupils achieve well across a range of subjects and particularly well in reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils benefit from an impressive array of events, trips and activities to spark their interest and enthusiasm for learning. Pupils contribute extremely well to their school and the wider community. They behave impeccably and have beautiful manners. The school’s work to develop pupils’ character is exceptional. Pupils show resilience and perseverance in all that they do. They know that sometimes making mistakes can be a good thing. For example, pupils told inspectors, ‘Getting things wrong makes you strong.’ The vast majority of parents and carers, who shared their views with inspectors, were overwhelmingly positive in their praise of how the school helps their children to learn and grow. Parents greatly value the wealth of opportunities that the school provides.
