The academy opened in September 2009 in purpose built, award winning accommodation. The first intake of students was into Year 7. Although it remains smaller than the average sized secondary school, the academy has grown in the three years since it opened and now has students in Years 7 to 9. The academy is designated as an 11-19 school which will eventually house a sixth form and is expected to grow to approximately 1,100 students. About half of students are known to be eligible for free school meals is well above average, as is the proportion of students who are boys. The proportion of disabled pupils and pupils with special educational needs is above average. A high proportion of students are of minority ethnic heritage. The academy fully represents the rich cultural and linguistic diversity of the local community. About 90% of students live within 0.5 miles of the academy. The academy has specialisms in business and financial services. It has Investors in People gold status.

How have we plotted this map?

For this school, priority is given to children who live nearest to the school, measured by a straight line. No predefined catchment area exists but a circular priority area is created, the radius of which is the distance between the school and the home of the last child taking up a place in the previous year. The size of the cut-off distance circle will change annually and is different to a catchment area.

School Guide provides this data as a guide to future admissions only. We recommend parents always check important catchment information with the relevant local authority and consider the list of higher priorities (SEN, siblings, etc.) before applying to a school.

See Pupil heat maps and catchment FAQs for more information on the way geographical areas are used to allocate places when a school is oversubscribed.

How have we plotted this pupil heat map?

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 maps. Catchment 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.

View this school’s catchment or cut-off distance map by clicking on the link above. See Pupil heat maps and catchment FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data. We also explain the difference between our pupil heat maps, cut-off distance maps and catchment area maps.
