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 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

The school is slightly larger than the average sized secondary school. It converted to academy status in September 2011. When its predecessor school, known as Swakeleys School, was inspected in October 2009, it was judged to be good. The school benefits from its own sixth form, which is open to both boys and girls from other schools. About half the pupils are White British. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is well above the national average but almost all have good command of the English language. Approximately one in six of the pupils are eligible for the pupil premium; this is a threefold increase over previous years but remains below the national average. Pupil premium provides additional funding for children in the care of the local authority, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those from service families. The proportions of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported at school action and school action plus are higher than average. The proportion of pupils with statements of special educational needs is also above average. The school meets the government’s floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The school has gained Investors in People, the Healthy Schools Award and the Princess Diana Award for work against bullying.
