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

St Joseph’s College converted to become an academy school on 1 February 2011. When its predecessor school of the same name was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding. St Joseph’s is a slightly larger than average secondary school. There is an entrance examination to gain admission and about three quarters of the students are practising Catholics. The rest are from other Christian denominations or other faiths. Most students come from White British backgrounds. The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is below average. Few students speak English as an additional language. The proportions of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported at school action and school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs are much lower than those found nationally. A very small proportion of students is known to be eligible for the pupil premium. Pupil premium is additional funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals; those looked after by the local authority and those from service families. The school does not use alternative provision. The sixth form is housed in its own building but many lessons take place in the main school. About half of all sixth formers join from other secondary schools. The school meets the government’s current floor standards which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. The headteacher is a national leader of education (NLE) and the school has several specialist leaders of education. St Joseph’s provides support for a number of other secondary schools in the area as well as one primary school. It is a teaching school and a Leading Edge school.
