What says..

An international education is the bedrock of Anglo European with the European flag on the school logo, signs in several languages, all students learning languages right through to the sixth form.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headteacher

Since 2015, Jody Gee BA PGCE NPQH. Previously deputy head for nine years. Still active in the classroom as an English teacher. Internationalist principles and inclusion, along with the belief that all students can be successful at learning languages (all students study two to GCSE and it’s compulsory in sixth form too), are among her core beliefs as a school leader.

Entrance

Priority to pupils from three local feeder (CofE) primary schools (usually some 50-60 pupils), then siblings. Remaining pupils with an international aspect to their family life - having lived or come from abroad, mixed nationality parents, with ability to communicate in another language and a degree of ‘cultural engagement’ as well as a willingness to become involved with what the school offers.

Two very interesting aspects for students applying from overseas...

Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
