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+.

We examined the value-added from KS2 to GCSE for 2022 to see which state selective grammar schools added the most value to their offspring. A note of caution - the more highly selective a grammar school, the less scope there will be to add value.
Grammar schools are state-funded, academically selective senior schools. The education a child receives at grammar school is paid for by the state unlike at private schools which provide education for a fee. There are currently around 163 located in 36 English local authorities, with around 167,000 pupils between them. Northern Ireland has a further 67 grammar schools, but there are none in Wales or Scotland. A word of caution: there are private schools that have the word 'grammar' in their name but this is purely for historical reasons.
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.
