School Description

The school is an average-sized secondary school. There are more boys than girls. About four out of five students are White British with the remaining students being of other White backgrounds or from minority ethnic groups. A close-to-average proportion of students speak English as an additional language, of whom a small number are at an early stage of learning English. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported through school action is average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. The most common needs relate to hearing impairment and autistic spectrum disorders. The school has a specially resourced provision for up to 15 hearing impaired students. A low proportion, under 100 students, is eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for specific groups including looked after children, students known to be eligible for free school meals and children of service families. The school has a very small number of looked after children and no children of service families. About 30 students are eligible for Year 7 catch-up funding, which is for students who did not achieve the expected Level 4 in English or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. A small number of Key Stage 4 students attend alternative, off-site educational provision full time and about 20 students attend one day a week at either K College (construction, catering, motor vehicle and hairdressing), Hadlow College (animal management) or the Better Life in South Borough (BLIS) Café (Princes Trust). The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. The school holds a British Council International School award.

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.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Great school”
AUTHOR:
"> My grandson has attended this school since September 2017 and the transition from primary to y7 has been made easy by the school. There's great pastoral care. For fully rounded pupils there are both sporting , academic and arts clubs to attend. New sports and science facilities are being built soon so it will be even better.
