This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil 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.

School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2021. We give a summary star rating based on the last available data as a helpful indicator to parents. This is to be used as a guide only. You can view national level results including the percentage of pupils across Wales achieving the expected levels for the Foundation Phase (age 7) and at Key Stage 2 (age 11) here.

January 2019 Summary Nearly all pupils in Ysgol Bryn Coch develop strong literacy, numeracy and information and communication technology (ICT) skills and apply them well in different contexts. Pupils in intervention groups, including pupils with additional learning needs, make particularly good progress from their starting points. Pupils’ wellbeing and their attitudes to learning are especially strong. Teachers in the foundation phase have an exceptionally good understanding of foundation phase principles and apply these very well. They are particularly successful in ensuring continuity and progression in developing pupils’ skills in self-directed tasks indoors and outside. Across the school, teachers plan imaginative and engaging lessons. There is a very consistent approach to managing pupils’ behaviour and a strong emphasis on helping pupils learn to be considerate, and to respect one another. Staff manage the support for vulnerable pupils and pupils with additional learning particularly well. Leaders have a powerful vision to develop the school as an extremely inclusive and welcoming community that nurtures pupils to become happy, confident and resilient learners. Staff wellbeing has a high priority, and this creates a positive working atmosphere. An effective leadership structure leads to extremely productive teamwork in the school.
