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

Littlegreen School is a special school for boys at key stage 2 and 3 who have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD). Boys at the school benefit from small class groups and the primary focus is on supporting their return to mainstream education. Typically the pupils of Littlegreen have social and communication difficulties and are of average to above average ability and are not dependent on one to one support. Our primary objective is to work with the pupil and his family to effect re-integration to a mainstream school or college, at the earliest opportunity. All boys work towards this aim and we have an excellent history of successful reintegration reflecting our very real commitment to inclusion. In 2002 the school received a 'School Achievement Award' in recognition of our work on re-integration.

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.
