Maths, sciences, geography and politics particularly strong at A level. Over 10 per cent of students achieved all A* or A grades. EPQ increasingly popular, unfortunately unlike foreign languages. GCSE results continue to be excellent. Progress 8 was classified as average. Led by an inspirational teacher with 20 years in the school, music on offer here is sensational.

Joined Egglescliffe as an NQT 20+ years ago after a teacher training placement here and has risen through the ranks since. One of a number of senior leaders who have been in the school for over two decades - a benefit, she says, as ‘they work as a strong inter-connected team’.

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.

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.
