The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
Red - Yellow – Green – Blue
Children get into the school from here:
- Red: regularly
- Yellow: most years
- Green: quite often
- Blue: infrequently
- Grey: sometimes, but not in this year
Blank areas indicate that no pupils got into the school from here in the last three years. This can be blind chance, or accommodation not occupied by children, hence blank areas surrounded by red or green.
Catchment areas can and do change. Living in catchment one year does not guarantee admission to a school in future years. Always check with the school's own admissions authority for the current admissions criteria. Admissions criteria may include, but is not exclusive to: siblings, faith, ability, distance from school, SEN.
Perhaps you suspect your child has some learning difficulty and you would like advice on what you should do. Or perhaps it is becoming clear that your child's current school is not working for him or her, and you need help to find a mainstream school which has better SEN provision, or to find a special school which will best cater for your child's area of need. Our SEN consultancy team advises on both special schools, and the mainstream schools with good SEN support, from reception through to the specialist colleges for 19+.

At specialist music, dance or performing arts schools, the arts aren't optional extras. They’re intrinsic to the school curriculum. Students are expected to fit in high level training and hours of practice alongside a full academic provision.
It's a lot to ask any child to take on, but for those with exceptional performing ability this kind of education can be transformative.
There are currently around 163 state funded grammar schools located in 36 English local authorities, with around 167,000 pupils between them. There are a further 69 grammar schools in Northern Ireland, but none in Wales or Scotland. Almost half of these are in what are considered 'selective authorities' (eg Kent and Buckinghamshire), where around one in five local children are selected for grammar school entry based on ability. The others are areas such as Barnet or Kingston, with only a few grammar schools.
