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 excel and flourish at this school. This is due to the ambitious curriculum provided and the strong sense of community. The school has high expectations for all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). The school provides an excellent education for pupils and creates a love of learning. Outcomes are exceptionally high. These are driven by a commitment to high aspiration for all. The school encourages pupils to get involved in service to others. Pupils support local homeless shelters, refuges, welfare charities and food banks. They do this not only by running fundraising collections, but by cooking meals and delivering hampers, with older students actively taking part on site wherever possible. Pupils also take part in the Combined Cadet Force, the National Citizenship Service and debating competitions to develop their confidence, character and understanding of the wider world. Respect is a core value at the school. Pupils take an active role in the school council, while sixth-form students mentor younger pupils and endeavour to be role models for their peers. Behaviour is exemplary and pupils are highly motivated to learn. Pupils are safe at the school and attend very well. The school works closely with families, and parents and carers speak highly of the nurturing environment and dedication of the staff.
