What the parents say...

We chose this small, nurturing and friendly school when my daughter started school at 4 as a very timid little girl. Now age 10, she is brimming with confidence and thriving at school in every way. She has piano Lessons at school and is about to take her Grade 1. She participates in all the sports sessions on offer, loves being in the school plays etc. The great benefit of a small school is that they get to have a go at everything. Academically, the school has fantastic teachers, who are encouraging and easy to approach. They have had amazing sats results in the past couple of years in year 6, so the proof appears to be there. Have a look at the school for yourself- it's a hidden treasure!

My daughter attends Heytesbury C of E primary school and loves it. The teachers are always enthusiastic and friendly and the pupils all seems extremely polite and happy children. The school boasts excellent grades and has extensive ground for the children to play sports and enjoy during break times. They also run daily breakfast and after school clubs.

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.
