What says..

Almost a third of pupils speak another language than English at home. Both mothers and fathers (plenty of the latter at pick-up time) involved in making the school a success. ‘All parents’, said one enthusiast, ‘are given an opportunity to contribute, not just non-working mums’. Expansive grounds boast country-like playing fields, as well as two large and notably well-equipped playgrounds kitted out with basketball and netball nets, table-tennis tables and sheltered cabins. Pupils also benefit from the school’s own allotments and nature trail, as well as access to nearby Coldfall Woods...

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head teacher

Since 1996, Evelyn Davies (50s). Ms Davies is one of life’s ‘superheads’, a woman who has taken a ‘bog-standard’ primary and transformed it into a star act with an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted, three-form entry and very happy parents. Most find her open-minded and approachable. ‘I had an idea’, commented one, ‘and she immediately said “let’s have a chat about it".' Hard working and well-organised, she gets things done. ‘She’s not ticking boxes, she really gets involved in the nitty gritty’. An active opponent of testing, testing, testing, she’s even been to parliament to protest, winning the admiration of her local MP (‘if I were the minister for education I would grab Evelyn Davies and put her as a key adviser. That way our children would be well educated in every sense of the word’).

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.
