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

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You and the leadership team clearly articulate the school vision of ‘growing and learning together’. You are ambitious and innovative. Governors said that the school leaders are ‘exciting people to work with’. School leaders and governors are rightly proud of the curriculum, which is engaging and challenging. Pupils enjoy learning. They talk with enthusiasm about the projects they are working on. They find the topics stimulating and were keen to talk to the inspector about the ‘Wallace and Gromit’ film scripts they have written. The pupils at this school have a good start to their education because they are very well cared for and their learning is fun. Throughout the school, the classrooms are attractive and well organised. Routines for learning are well established and pupils respond well to them. Pupils know what the teachers expect of them and respond positively. Pupils are polite, friendly and welcoming. They behave well both in lessons and at playtime and dinnertime. They are proud of their school. When asked to describe school in one word, they said ‘fun’, ‘happy’ and ‘clever’. Parents and carers spoke very highly of the school and praised you for ‘always being on the ball’. They find the school staff and leaders to be approachable and responsive. One parent said: ‘I love the way they teach. The children have fun while they’re learning’. You are keen to work closely with the wider community, for example through the very well supported grandparents’ day.
