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’ experience of school varies widely. This is because pupils’ behaviour varies widely, from the respectful and polite to the defiant and, at times, dangerous. Which classes you are in, who else is in them, which teachers you have, and who else is moving around school at the same time as you go a long way to determining whether your day is good or not. For some pupils, their day is spoiled by frequent low-level disruption, defiance of some pupils towards staff and derogatory language. For others, much less so. Some pupils feel unsafe in school because they feel intimidated by the behaviour of a minority. Some pupils do not think that staff will help them if they share a worry. Such is the variability, though, many pupils feel happy and safe in school. There is a mixed picture about how staff deal with bullying. Some pupils told inspectors that it does not happen very much and, if it does, it is dealt with. Other pupils do not believe it is well handled. Expectations of what pupils can achieve vary widely. In some classes there is a noticeable zip and energy, with staff pushing pupils to do well. Elsewhere, the mood is flat, with much lower expectations of what pupils can achieve.
