This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil 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.

School Description

Pupils enjoy their time at the school very much. This is because they have positive relationships with their teachers and other staff, which help support a vibrant atmosphere around the school. On the whole, teaching is effective, and the school environment promotes beneficial learning opportunities. Both indoors and outdoors, the classrooms are stimulating and active learning areas. This assists most pupils to make strong progress in language and mathematics and achieve well from their starting points. Staff successfully promote an ethos of care and support for pupils that encourages them to take responsibility for their well-being and behaviour. This contributes to their positive attitudes to learning. The school is a very diverse community that encourages pupils to develop confidence in their own, individual identity, while also developing a healthy respect for others. Pupils state openly that they feel safe and secure in and around the school, and that the staff encourage them to be happy and relaxed. Teachers listen carefully to what the pupils want to learn about. They blend these ideas and interests into engaging lessons that encourage pupils to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding in a variety of different ways. Pupils’ literacy skills progress particularly well, and many use these skills effectively across all areas of their learning. However, pupils’ skills in speaking Welsh and their ability to use numeracy and digital skills across the curriculum are not as effective. Leaders and governors work well together, and the new senior leadership team shares its responsibilities purposefully. They provide beneficial professional learning opportunities for staff that supports an effective whole school ethos where most staff feel valued for their contribution to school life. Leaders self-evaluate the school’s work rigorously to plan for improvements. This is a thorough process. However, they attempt to do too much within individual targets and leaders need to streamline the targets in order to make them more manageable.
