What the school says...

Beech Hill Primary School is an outstanding school, led by National School Leader Nicola Nelson-Taylor. We pride ourselves in being a significant place within the local community, in which pupils, parents, friends, businesses and agencies alike, can come together and build links with each other for the benefit of the children and families we serve. With these values in mind, our vision is to provide each child with the skills, self belief and drive they need to aim high in life.

I look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school.

Nicola Nelson-Taylor Executive Head Teacher

What we think about our school: Beech Hill Primary is an outstanding school, where we make more and more progress every year. Our lessons are always fun and we never fail to learn something interesting from them. Teachers at Beech Hill are highly skilled and help us with what ever we need to learn and make progress.

To make sure our voice is heard we have a 'School Council', 'House Captains', 'Pr...efects', as well as a 'Head Boy' and 'Head Girl'. All these people have an important role in ensuring we all feel safe, happy and included.

We have a large selecton of clubs that we can attend either at lunctime or after school. What is more, you can also come to our free breakfast club or after school care club called 'Kangeroo Club'. We have a wide range of outdoor facilities that everyone can use and enjoy such as the 'trim track', 'climbing frame', 'wildlife garden' and our school pets; 'the chickens'!

We look forward to welcoming you to our school.

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.
