School Description

The school is a larger than the average-sized secondary school. A large proportion of students come from minority ethnic groups. The proportions of students who speak English as an additional language and those who are at an early stage in learning English are well above average. The proportion of students supported by the pupil premium is above the national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding for students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs is below average. Thirteen students are educated away from the school site on part-time work-related courses at: Harrow Skills Centre, Kenton; Beatz, Northwood; and The Jubilee Academy, Harrow. The school has two designated resource bases. One provides support for a small number of students with physical difficulties and the other supports a small number of students on the autism spectrum. The school is part of the Harrow Sixth Form Collegiate which includes Bentley Wood High School, Canons High School, Harrow College, Harrow Skills Centre, Hatch End High School, Nower Hill High School, Park High School, Rooks Heath College, and Stanmore College Sixth Form. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 11.

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 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.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Best SchoolThank you Mrs Hammond”
AUTHOR:
"> I would like to thank Mrs Hammond for the great way she has managed the school. My sons went to Whitmore and they achieved the best results. They then continued to sixth form and again achieved great results. Thanks to Whitmore, they are now law graduates and are in good jobs. The staff teachers and head teacher are so nice and supportive and I believe it’s the school that makes a child what they are. Great school.
