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 proud to attend this welcoming and inclusive school. They understand that they are valued for who they are. They feel safe and know they have trusted adults to talk to, should they wish. Pupils are happy and say that the best thing about the school is the caring teachers and staff. There are high expectations for pupils to achieve well, despite any challenges they may face. These expectations are realised through the positive outcomes that most pupils achieve. The school has a calm atmosphere, and pupils behave well. Most are ready to learn and enjoy their lessons. Well-trained staff provide effective support for pupils who have more challenging behaviour. Those pupils who need more time to settle have access to the school’s nurture class, the Orchard. This is a place where pupils can learn to self-regulate their emotions and learn at their own pace. Pupils enjoy exploring the forest school outdoor provision. There are a range of popular clubs for pupils to access, including netball, ‘eco club’ and choir. Parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about the school. A comment from one parent, typical of many, is, ‘This is a warm and welcoming school where staff go above and beyond to ensure all children are happy and safe.’

“Highly recommend”

"> Since moving my son to this school over two years ago he has become a more balanced, happier confident child. He has excelled in all subjects and is even acting singing and playing instruments. Something he was never encouraged to do in his previous school. I would recommend this school to anyone thinking of moving their child. You will NOT regret it.
