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 are very happy at this welcoming school. They benefit from the school’s ethos of wanting everyone to do well. Some pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) arrive at the school with negative past experiences in education. Adults quickly help these pupils settle and understand what they need to do well in school. Pupils care for each other. They routinely demonstrate the ‘Gospel values’ that the school teaches. Children in the early years share and take turns. They delight in playing and learning together. Older pupils take responsibility for younger pupils, such as by reading with them. Older pupils also serve as positive role models for younger pupils, demonstrating positive learning attitudes. Pupils are inspired by staff’s passion for learning. In lessons, pupils are focused and keen to succeed. Pupils approach their studies with determination. When discussing what they are trying to learn, pupils speak articulately and enthusiastically. Children in the early years quickly understand the importance of learning and take pleasure in their achievements. Pupils also benefit from the school’s many opportunities to develop their own interests and talents. For example, all pupils benefit from learning a musical instrument. Pupils are well prepared for their next steps in education as well-rounded individuals.
