What the parents say...

I have 3 children at this school and although they are all very different and need different support, they all love it! They really inspire the children to want to learn and do their best and also they have some great activities in school which makes it lots of fun too. I feel we are very fortunate to have such an excellent school - available for free!

I have had kids at the school since 2011 and they have really enjoyed it. The teaching is top notch and the school retained it's outstanding status in 2012. The kids have access to a great playing field and the Downs beyond. There are lots of after school clubs. Children go onto the two main state schools: Swanmore and Perrins but some also go to independent schools (PGS and Churchers).

A fantastic school. My children love going to school here - they learn in a supportive and fun environment and are always challenged to do their best.

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.
