School Description

Whitcliffe Mount is a larger than average secondary school that now caters for students in Years 7 to 11. It has had specialist status as a business and enterprise college since 2004. In 2012, the school entered the final phase of reorganisation from a 13 to 18 to an 11 to 16 years school as part of the local authority reorganisation of middle schools. In September 2011, the sixth form was removed and in September 2012, an additional 850 students entered the school in Years 7, 8 and 9, along with 35 new staff, including 11 newly qualified teachers. In this transition period, while the school converts and stabilises to an 11 to 16 school, the numbers in year groups remain variable: there are currently 347 students in Year 11 and 176 in Year 7. The school has a new headteacher who joined in September 2013 following the retirement of the previous headteacher. The proportion of students known to be eligible for support through the pupil premium (additional funding to support students known to be eligible for free school meals, children who are looked after and the children from service families) is around average. The proportion of students supported at school action is above average, as is the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is below average, as is the proportion of students from minority ethnic heritages. A small number of students attend alternative provision. The school is spread across a large site in numerous separate buildings. A rebuilding programme is planned.

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.
