What says..

Playground can be a noisy affair in this large school. Lego club has been set up for quieter souls who find the hustle and bustle of break-time too much, as well as a cordoned off quieter zone, but some parents still feel ‘it’s a bit of a jungle out there.’ School takes part in every tournament going - often with great success. Huge number of trophies on display to prove it. Swimming from years 3 to 5. Not just predictable sports here - cross-country and…

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head teacher

Since September 2019, Jo Clarke. Previously deputy headteacher at Clapham Manor Primary School.

Entrance

Once through to the infant school, each child is allocated a place in the junior school, though still necessary to reapply via the borough. Places do become available further up the school, so it’s worth persevering. Incredibly popular.

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

Honeywell School welcomes all children and aims to ensure that those with special educational needs become successful learners and fulfil their potential. Within the school those children children identified as having a special educational need receive high levels of support. This may include help with behaviour and social skills, to support teaching to raise the child's literacy and numeracy standards. Children with special educational needs are identified by the class teachers who continually assess children through target setting and tracking of progress. The children's needs are discussed with the SEN coordinator and appropriate support put in place. Provision maps or IEPs (individual education plans)are drawn up, which are then shared with the parents and the child.

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.

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.
