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.

Special schools provide a unique and distinctive educational environment to meet the needs of the pupils in their community. Undertaking standard tests may not be appropriate and we do not show performance data for special schools.

School Description

The school caters for pupils with a wide range of special educational needs, including those with profound and multiple learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties and autism. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The percentage of pupils from minority ethnic groups is 67% which is well above the national average. The proportion who speak English as an additional language is also well above average at 45%. The proportion of pupils eligible for additional government funding, known as the pupil premium, is 54%, which is well above average. This is funding intended to support eligible pupils who are eligible for free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority. All Year 7 pupils are eligible for additional government catch-up funding to improve their literacy and numeracy. Pupils are not entered early for public examinations. There is an Additional Resource Provision (ARP) on site which is managed by the school on behalf of the local authority. The ARP provides teaching and care for pupils with complex needs for 48 weeks of the year and is aimed at raising the standards of achievement and minimising the need for residential provision and at reintegrating the pupils back into mainstream provision quickly. Students in the sixth form attend Barking College of Further Education for short periods and some engage in work experience off site. Children attend the Nursery or Reception classes on a full-time basis.
