School Description

The school is part of the Transformation Academy Trust. The chief executive officer (CEO) of the trust took up her post in September 2018. The principal took up the post as substantive principal in March 2019. He had previously been the acting principal since June 2018. Prior to June 2018, the principal was the school’s designated safeguarding lead. The school is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. The majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The school has pupils from 11 different ethnic groups. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional Inspection report: Sutton Community Academy, 19–20 March 2019 Page 9 of 12 language is considerably lower than the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND who do not have an education, health and care plan (EHCP) is higher than the national average. The proportion of pupils who have an EHCP is higher than average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is considerably higher than the national average. A small number of pupils attend alternative, off-site provision at CAST and PollyTeach.

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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

Sutton Community Academy Reviews

"> Sutton Centre Academy is, in my opinion, letting it's staff and pupils down. I say this as a parent of a Year 10 student. It would appear that the Head and his management team are becoming more and more focused on the schools public image than what actually happens within the building itself. I am constantly being told about instances where students are being pulled up over incorrect uniform. Now, I am the first to say that a uniform should be respected when it has been employed. But when the place is without adequate heating and has class rooms with windows that do not close, how can it be reasonable to insist that students do not wear their coats indoors? I have also received a letter from the head telling me (rather than inviting my input) that my son will not be celebrating the festivities at the end of term. He will instead be spending the last 3 days of the term doing extra studies so that he might improve his grades. I agree that where improvement is needed it should be persued in the strongest possible fashion. But to expect students to do any serious kind of grade improvement in 3 days while the rest of the school is enjoying the build up to a christmas break, is a thoughtless and misguided idea.
"> Sutton Centre Academy has gone "down hill" since becoming a academy! the moral of staff is at it's lowest hence the amount of teachers and staff that have left, the management and ex chair of governors are corrupt and only see £££ instead of pupils! bring back the college that we all know and love
