What the school says...

Hope Community School will be single form entry primary school starting with a reception class in September 2013, rising to 210 at full capacity - growing with a new reception class each year. The school will have a religious character of Christianity but will be open to people of all faiths and those of no faith. We are a team of local people, passionate about our community who have lived, worked and delivered community projects in the area for many years.

Our vision is to achieve excellent outcomes for children and the local community. Hope Community School will be the heartbeat of the community, reaching out to local families to increase children's aspirations, encouraging a spirit of adventure and maximising each child's talents and gifts. Pupils of Hope Community School will be encouraged to dream limitlessly, explore confidently, discover expectantly and take ownership of their futures.

We are committed to every child, no matter their ability, ethnicity or background thriving throughout their education. We intend to create an encouraging and inclusive environment that extends beyond academics and into the community, using links with local businesses, offering practical and vocational opportunities as well as traditional pathways. Education should be engaging and we will inspire children to learn and develop beyond the walls of a school. Our vision is to link school and community, teaching the value of each other, in order to better prepare both for their futures.

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.
