School Description

This is an average-sized junior school. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for children in the care of the local authority and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals) is much lower than the national average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs on the school roll is about 9%. A similar proportion have more severe needs or have a statement of special educational needs. This is lower than that found in most schools. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. The school meets the government’s floor standards, which set minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics in Year 6. Two pupils attend Three Ways Special School in Bath on a part-time basis for one or two days each week. Another child attends L'Ecole Française de Bristol for one day each week.

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.

Widcombe CofE Junior School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Great Bath primary”
"> I looked at lots of options around Bath as we were moving from London and I could choose the catchment area. I loved the outside space and more creative atmosphere here. There is a 2 class intake so there are more options on friends rather than only being one class per year like some of the local schools. The children get a strong grounding in all they need to go on to private schools in the area or access one of the good state schools. It's a church school but the Church of England aspect is a lot less evident than at other church schools which suits our family. My daughter is happy here and has made a lovely group of friends.
“Warm and caring school”
"> My son attended Widcombe juniors, although only for a short time, but during our time there we found it a warm and caring school with a fantastic music programme and an active parent body. His teacher in Y3 was energetic and responsive to parents. He made great friends there that he still keeps in touch with. Only drawback was no school meals as there isn't a kitchen on site.
"> Victoria, nope - there is no automatic guarantee of a place at the Juniors if you are at the Infants. They are different schools with different funding; the Junior is a C of E Voluntary Aided; the infants isn't.
"> I am looking at this school for my son. Does anyone know if infant school admission automatically guarantees entry to Widcombe Junior School or do you have to reapply?
