2015 Good Schools Guide Awards

  • Best performance by Boys taking Computer Appreciation at an English Comprehensive School (Functional Skill at Entry Level)
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.

Special Education Needs

The children and young people at Beverley school require a very structured approach to learning and they benefit from a high staffing ratio (generally a teacher and two assistants to 7 or 8 pupils). Our approach is autism-specific, and designed to maintain a friendly, calm and purposeful atmosphere. Staff know pupils well, and respect their individual needs. The organisation of the school, our teaching styles and our excellent staff/pupil relationships, all minimise the stress on our pupils. This helps them to make the most of their communication and interaction skills, and to benefit fully from the educational opportunities on offer. Historically, Beverley School was established as a School for the Deaf. Provision for children with autism was added in the 1980s and the balance of the population then steadily changed. The school has moved through a phased reorganisation, with provision for deaf pupils transferring to mainstream settings. Beverley is now uniquely placed as the only 100% autism-specialist school and service in the Tees Valley area. Throughout the reorganisation period, there have been many opportunities to build on the school’s strengths. In partnership with Middlesbrough LEA, we are ensuring that Beverley is recognised as a regional centre of excellence for the education of children with autism. We have succeeded in recruiting and training an excellent staff team, a programme of extensive building refurbishment work has been completed, and many specialist facilities have been added. Beverley School also provides training and advice to other schools with pupils on the autistic spectrum. This aspect of our work continues to grow, and we have built a network of contacts to support a range of genuinely inclusive options appropriate to the needs of individual pupils.

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.
