What says..

The formula for its success lies in excellent teaching, exceptional teamwork and a relentless focus on the needs of every child, starting with incoming 2 year olds, who are given a speech-and-language fillip to ensure they’re reception ready. Generous, well-kept grounds, Astroturf pitch and well-equipped gym are all put to good use, with a specialist sports coach teaching hockey, tennis and multi-sports. ‘Forest school is number one,’ said a pupil...

What The Good Schools Guide says

Executive Head

Since 2013, Nathalie Parker, BMus (King’s College, London), PGCE (Goldsmiths), BSc psychology (Birkbeck). After various posts in south London including deputy head at an all-through academy, glamorous, smoky-eyed Ms Parker (40s) arrived at what, unexpectedly for her, turned out to be a school in difficulties. ‘Its Ofsted and data suggested it was a good school, so when it was immediately put on warning notice it came as a shock.’ Even so, she took the challenge in her stride, turning around the culture of the school in a matter of months and recently earning from Ofsted the most outstanding of outstanding reports. Charming and persuasive, she is lavished with praise by inspectors and parents. ‘Inspirational,’ say the former; ‘visionary,’ chorused a parent. ‘She’s very good at team building and organising, and is completely non-ideological...

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.
