What the school says...
The school, a county secondary co-educational day school, currently has pupils between the ages of 11-18 who live in Hexthorpe, Balby and Woodfield areas. The school has a comprehensive intake and caters for pupils of all abilities.
The present school opened in 1981 after having been extensively developed. The buildings include a range of teaching rooms; comprehensive Sixth Form facilities, Science Laboratories, Technology areas, Sports Hall and Gymnasium, Music rooms with special practice rooms and a Library complex which includes a work related resource suite. New buildings have been added since 1995 to accommodate the extra pupils coming into the school. These included two Food Technology rooms, three additional Science Laboratories, three Information Technology suites, rooms for Religious Studies, Mathematics, Art, and Modern Foreign Languages, refurbished rooms for Control and Design Technology, re-fitted changing rooms and additional facilities for Physical Education. A further building programme will include additional rooms for Technology and Science and a new general teaching block. Our facilities are now second to none.
A team of teachers has been appointed who are concerned to develop the academic and creative potential of all the pupils. We will endeavour to provide a stimulating atmosphere in which learning can take place. ...Read more

Results by exam and subject
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
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.
