Please note: 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 school aims to create successful learning by providing curriculum access, giving equality of opportunity and developing the interests, abilities and aptitudes of all students, whether they have specific learning difficulties or they are Gifted and Talented. The Inclusion & SEN team consists of a well-established group of teachers, teaching assistants and Learning Mentors. Methods of support include, in-class support, withdrawal, group activities at lunchtimes and one-to-one pastoral care. The school has introduced 2 teaching groups dedicated to vulnerable students in years 7 & 8. These groups are taught for the majority of their lessons in a home room by the same teacher and receive a high level of TA support and additional help with literacy, numeracy and social skills. Enrichment activities are available for Gifted and Talented students. We have a wide range of alternative curriculum opportunities for KS4 students who wish to enhance their skills in a vocational capacity. The SENCO is a specialist on Autistic Spectrum Disorders & many parents choose the school because of the provision offered to children on the spectrum.

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.
