School Description

Warlingham School is a larger than average-sized 11 to 18 mixed comprehensive school. It became an academy in November 2012. When its predecessor school, Warlingham School was last inspected by Ofsted it was judged good overall. The school has a specialism in business and enterprise. The proportion of students eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for students known to be eligible for free school meals, looked after children and children from service families, is lower than average. There are 33 students eligible for catch-up funding, which is for Year 7 students who did not attain Level 4 in English at the end of primary school. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs and receive support through school action is lower than average. The proportion of disabled students and those on school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs, is higher than average. Most students are of White British heritage. The proportion of students who are from minority ethnic backgrounds is lower than average and the proportion who speak English as an additional language is also below average. A small number of Key Stage 4 students receive part of their education off site at East Surrey College. The school meets the government’s floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress.

Pupil heat map key

0300 200 1004

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 last School Census (released annually in July).

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 last 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.

“Sadly Dissappointed”
"> I am the mother of a pupil who has attended this school right through from 11 to 18. She is now in her last year doing her A levels. In the beginning this was a fantastic school but then the head teacher left and it started to decline. At GCSE there was nothing but panic and mayhem. Any observations about, in particular, an under performing English teacher were left unheeded for the full first year of the GCSE, leaving my daughter to catch up on all things English in the second year, resulting in a result less than predicted. I had hoped that 6 form would be better but in fact this was far worse. Little or no support for students in their A levels. In fact, Art students have nowhere permanent to work and their work is not held safely and is open to damage from other students. Complaints are left ignored, at meetings teachers are surly or arrogant added to which the student is then met with unhelpful or upsetting remarks. Fortunately, my daughter is tuff and was always going to do well despite the teachers best efforts to reduce her confidence. I have given this school 3 stars as up till now my daughter has been happy, particularly in the first few years, and has made some really lovely friends. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this school on any level.
