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 school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. Pupils leave at the end of Year 4. Pupils are taught in single-age classes, except Years 2 and 3, which are taught together. Most pupils are White British. A significant proportion have Traveller heritage. Many pupils join or leave the school part way through their primary school careers. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (which in this school provides additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, those with a parent in the armed services or those looked after by the local authority) is well above average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is above average. The proportions supported at school action plus, or with a statement of special educational needs, are above average. Since the previous inspection, the school was planning to convert to become an academy, but this fell through, creating a period of uncertainty.

The Rushmere Park Academy Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating


“A school well worth a visit”

"> St.G's is a small school which achieves phenomenal results. 2015 has been an outstanding year during which the children's results placed it among the top 2% of schools in the country, the school’s outstanding teaching of phonics was recognised by its being awarded the Model School status by Read Write Inc and it won the Pride of Bedfordshire award in the class "Excellence in Education". A fantastic place to send your children ..
“A small school with a big heart”

"> We are delighted with the decision we made to send our daughter to St George's. All the staff are kind, caring and passionate. One thing we have valued the most is the outstanding levels of communication the school provides on our child's learning, we can access her progress online 5 times a year! As parents that has meant we can help her learning continue at home with a little guidance from her teacher, plus their reading programme is fantastic. We are really happy and would recommend this school to everyone.
“Great local school”

"> This is a great local school with a strong family/community focus. My son has attended this school for the past 3 years and is always coming home with stories of what he has been up to that day. The staff are great and know the children inside out, keeping them safe and happy. The headteacher is friendly, visible and approachable, the staff are a team and enjoy creating fun topics of all the children to enjoy. These days it's rare to find small schools that devote their time to each child, we know that our son has blossomed with the education he is receiving and we are delighted.
