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.

How School Guide Rates Secondary Schools

For secondary schools in Wales, schools are rated on key performance indicators for pupils up to the age of 16 (GCSE only) due to the fact the government did not publish A level data for the last academic year.

School Description

Many pupils at Ysgol Gyfun Gwent Is Coed are proud to be a part of the school community. They get on well and respect each other’s points of view. Overall, they benefit from purposeful opportunities to develop their understanding of Welsh culture and traditions. Many pupils behave well in lessons. They work productively with their teachers, work diligently throughout the lesson and respond constructively to verbal and written feedback. A few pupils do not show positive attitudes to learning, which means that they do not make sufficient progress. On the whole, strategic planning to develop provision for wellbeing and inclusion is not robust enough to ensure that teachers and leaders work proactively enough to address these issues. A strong feature of the school’s provision is the opportunities for pupils to develop their oral skills. Many pupils express themselves effectively and offer good extended answers when responding to questions or when presenting an opinion during a discussion. The school’s leaders have worked together effectively to ensure staff’s professional development to support the teaching of oracy skills and the effect of this can be seen in lessons. There are suitable opportunities for pupils to use their reading, writing and numeracy skills across the curriculum. However, there are not enough opportunities for pupils to develop their higher-order reading skills and digital competence. In many lessons, teachers plan activities that challenge pupils suitably. In these lessons, pupils make appropriate progress in their subject skills. The lesson’s tasks build sensibly, which means that there is a suitable pace to learning. In a few lessons where pupils make swift progress, teachers adapt the pace of learning skilfully to respond to pupils’ needs. These teachers plan their lessons expertly to ensure that all pupils make strong progress. Since being appointed in June 2020, the headteacher has worked diligently with the deputy head to ensure the smooth running of the school through the challenging period of the pandemic. They have also managed the school while work has been ongoing to complete the buildings. Due to the building work, pupils have little space to socialise and play outside. The school has self-evaluation processes that include beneficial activity, such as lesson observations and scrutiny of pupils’ work, and findings feed appropriately into school improvement plans. However, systems for gathering information to evaluate the school’s work do not focus specifically enough on pupils’ progress and skills nor the quality of provision.
