School Description

The King’s Academy is a larger than average sized secondary school. It has specialist business and enterprise status and is part of the Emmanuel Schools Foundation. The proportion of students eligible for pupil premium funding (which is provided by the government to support the learning of students who are known to be eligible for free school meals, in the care of the local authority or the children of members of the armed forces), is above the national average. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is below the national average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is twice the average. Most students are White British. A few are from minority ethnic groups with very few at an early stage of learning to speak English. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set out the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The academy has specialist provision for students in Years 7 to Year 13 who have hearing impairment, visual impairment or moderate learning difficulties. This is known as the resourced provision. Although the number of students varies in each year, it can be over 10% of the students in a year group.

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 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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Lack of school heating is beyond belief”
AUTHOR:
"> Please can someone explain how you can expect any kind of educational output from students in a cold school in winter. Apparently the corridors are heated but not the classrooms. After speaking to another parent, she confided that there just is not enough money to heat the school. How can this be?! Just because the principal is ex Army, does not mean he can run a school like a 'boot camp'.
“I had much higher expectations”
AUTHOR:
"> I had much higher expectations for this academy. Firstly, not only is the percentage of students leaving Year 11 with 5 GCSEs is very poor, the so-called principal has caused over 40 teachers to leave the academy - many of which were liked by the students because of their excellent teaching style and friendly manner. In my opinion the school was much better before this principal took control. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!
