What says..

Bohunt back in 2009 was an unassuming, underachieving comprehensive with the second lowest funding in Hants. Mr Strowger has piloted it into the stratosphere. Now it’s an academy enjoying a high profile nationally and internationally. Exam results place it in the top 20 per cent of non-selective schools nationally. Money on its own can’t buy you Bohunt’s wholehearted, highly professional teachers; they’re easily as good as the best you’ll find in the most successful fee-paying schools...

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2009, Neil Strowger BA (Keele, European Studies), MA (Sussex) PGCE (Oxon). Born in Norfolk, educated in the sort of comprehensive where bright kids played it safe and kept it low. The memory burns, fuelling his determination to make Bohunt a ‘nurturing place’ where students can work hard for the sheer love of it and grow their other talents. Began teaching in 1997, appointed to the headship of Bohunt in his early 30s in 2009. He’s also the CEO of the Bohunt Academy Trust. Married, three young children. A self-confessed and bashful workaholic, he relaxes by visiting nice places of a Sunday and, when he can, skiing.

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.
