The academy opened as an 11–16 school in 2010. A sixth form was created in September 2011. In September 2012, a primary sector was opened making the school an all-through provider for pupils and students aged 3–19. Both the predecessor secondary and primary school had previously been in special measures. The academy is sponsored by the Diocese of Canterbury, Benenden School, Canterbury Christ Church University and Kent County Council. It is larger than the average-sized school. There are similar numbers of boys and girls attending the school in the age range 3–16, but boys outnumber girls in the sixth form. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding provided by the government to help nationally underperforming groups such as students eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after) is considerably above the national average. Close to 80% of students are of a White British heritage. While the proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is below average, the proportion who speaks English as an additional language is well above average. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported through school action is well above average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also well above average. A very small number of Key Stage 4 students receive part of their education off-site through The North School, a neighbouring secondary school, and K College, a local further education provider. In the 2012–13 academic year, the academy’s secondary school met the current government floor standard, which determines the minimum expectations for attainment and progress by the end of Key Stage 4. The floor standard was not met in the primary sector.

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 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 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 last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Admissions Team (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.

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.
