School Description

The academy is larger than the average-sized secondary school. The sixth form is smaller than average. About two thirds of the students attending the academy are White British, along with an above average percentage of students from many different minority ethnic backgrounds. A lower-than-average proportion of students speak English as an additional language, of whom only a few are at an early stage of learning English. The proportion of students who receive support through the pupil premium is below average. This is additional government funding for specific groups, including students known to be eligible for free school meals and looked after children. A few looked after children attend the academy. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs is above average. The most common needs relate to students with autism, physical disability or moderate learning difficulties. Since the previous inspection, an Enhanced Learning Provision facility has been set up for students with physical disabilities. It is funded by the local authority and run by the academy. Ten of the 14 places available have been filled so far. About 30 students are eligible for Year 7 catch-up funding, which is for students who did not achieve the expected Level 4 in reading or mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. A very small number of sixth form students study one of their subjects at Riddlesdown Collegiate. The academy does not use any other off-site education provision. The school is a member of the Valley Teaching School Alliance which includes two other secondary and several primary schools. The school exceeds the government’s current floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.

Catchment information

020 8726 6400

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.
