School Description

Greenhill School is a mixed 11 to 18 comprehensive school located in the town of Tenby in Pembrokeshire. There are around 1,160 pupils on roll, of which approximately 230 are in the sixth form. These figures represent a decrease since the last inspection when there were around 1,320 pupils on roll. The school serves the coastal towns of Tenby and Saundersfoot as well as over 100 square miles of the surrounding countryside. Just over 11% of pupils are entitled to free school meals, which is lower than the national average of 17.7%. Around 1% of pupils live in the 20% most deprived areas of Wales. Around 33% of pupils have a special educational need. This figure is higher than the national average of 19.2%. Just over 1% of pupils have statements of special education needs. This figure is lower than the national average of 2.5% for Wales as a whole. A very few pupils come from ethnic-minority backgrounds and receive support to learn English as an additional language. A very small number of pupils speak Welsh as their first language. The current headteacher has been in post since 2009. A longstanding deputy headteacher retired at the end of 2013 and an assistant headteacher is currently acting as deputy headteacher. There are three other members of the main leadership team who have been in post for between three and 16 years. At post-16, the school works with two other schools and a further education college as part of the South Pembrokeshire Federation. The Welsh Baccalaureate is delivered in the sixth form. The individual school budget per pupil for The Greenhill School in 2013-2014 means that the budget is £4,308 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the secondary schools in Pembrokeshire is £5,066 and the minimum is £4,134. The Greenhill School is fourth out of the eight secondary schools in Pembrokeshire in terms of its school budget per pupil.

How many pupils attending the school live in the area?


The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil 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 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.
