School Description

The Littlehampton Academy (TLA) is a large, mixed school with a small sixth form. It became a sponsored academy in September 2009 and is part of the Woodard Academies Trust. In line with the trust’s ethos, the school describes itself as a Christian-designated academy. Almost all pupils are of White British or other White background. A broadly average proportion of pupils is considered to speak English as an additional language. Just over a quarter of pupils are supported by the pupil premium, which is in line with the national average. The percentage of pupils who are entitled to support for a special educational need, including those who have an education, health and care plan, is also Inspection report: The Littlehampton Academy, 24–25 April 2018 Page 10 of 13 broadly typical. The Scott Centre, a resource base which accommodates 15 pupils who have autistic spectrum disorder, is based on the school site. Admission to the Scott Centre is overseen by the local authority, with TLA staff managing the service it provides. All pupils in the Scott Centre have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. The Compass Centre provides additional support for pupils in managing their behaviour. This resource is run by, and specifically for, pupils who attend TLA. A small number of key stage 4 pupils attend full-time alternative provision at Chichester College. The acting principal who was in post at the time of the last inspection was appointed permanently to his post in April 2016. At that point, the executive headteacher post, which was being undertaken by the trust’s chief executive officer, ceased to exist. The trust delegates responsibility for governance to a local academy council. The majority of academy councillors were not in post at the time of the last inspection. In 2017, the school did not meet the government’s floor standards for what pupils are expected to achieve by the end of Year 11. The school meets the Department for Education’s definition of a coasting school based on key stage 4 academic performance results in 2015 to 2017.

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 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.
