What the school says...

'A village school at the heart of the community'

Eastling School is a small village school in the idyllic North Downs catchment. Boasting high staff ratios, lots of space and a real family ethos, the school is fully inclusive establishment that gains high quality results across its varied pupil catchment. The school prides itself on the range and variety of curriculum enhancements possible by the loyal and generous support of an active PTA. These include a full use of the environment as a learning resource with educational visits seen as a key element of learning. Sports and Music feature highly in this Artsmark and Sports Award recognised school, which also holds the Green Flag award (Eco awareness), Safe Schools' and Healthy Schools' standards.

Our catchment area is wide with above 75% of the intake from towns, villages and hamlets more than seven miles distant from the school. Similarly, our children go on to a wide range of educational destinations from private, grammar or standard schools.

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.
