What the school says...
Hamstead Hall is distinctive in many ways. It has a significantly wide range of abilities with a Special Needs Rescource Base alongside students winning places at Oxford and Cambridge. We are an ethnically rich and varied school community of both pupils and staff. Our students come to school to learn.
This is not currently a GSG-reviewed school.

Special Education Needs
We are a 11-18 school with a Special Needs Resource Base which has 40 places for students. These places are allocated by SENAS. The Base is a support base and all students are fully integrated into the whole school with suitable support. Students mainly have MLD, but from 2006 2 places per year group will be allocated to students with Speech and Language Difficulties. Ofsted in 2003 commented that our strengths were our inclusivity, Excellent pastoral support and Quality of provision. We were awarded a 1 for inclusion and a 2 overall.

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
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.
