School Description

This is an above average-sized secondary school, where a greater proportion of girls attend than seen nationally. Applications for places at both the main school and the sixth form are consistently oversubscribed. The proportion of disadvantaged students, and therefore eligible for support through the pupil premium funding, is below the national average. The pupil premium is additional funding to support those students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those in the care of the local authority. The proportion of students who are disabled or who have special educational needs is broadly average. The proportion of students whose heritage is White British is above average. The proportion of students whose heritage is Indian is larger in the sixth form than the main school.  In 2014, the school met the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations of students’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics.  In 2014, students were entered early for GCSE examinations in mathematics. Currently, 22 students from Years 10 and 11 attend, part-time, one of three alternative providers of education. These are Bolton College, Bolton Wanderers FC and Myerscough College. While there, students study vocational courses including hair and beauty, construction, motor vehicle maintenance and landbased studies.  Since the previous inspection, there have been a significant number of staff changes including a new headteacher, deputy headteacher and two other senior leaders. Staff responsible for the leadership and management of the sixth form have also been appointed within the last two years. A new leader of mathematics and three other staff appointments with leadership and management responsibilities for mathematics started in September 2014. A new special educational needs co-ordinator also started work at the school in September 2014.

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.
