What says..

This is a true village school, with a community vibe, and it is regularly described as ‘unique’ and ‘special.’ ‘If you’re on the outskirts of the village, there’s a chance you won’t get in,’ admits the head. There’s a wooden outdoor learning lodge, plus wet weather gear for the whole school, and the school has also formed a strong link with a neighbouring teaching farm, where the children spend time looking after animals, collecting produce and…

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headteacher

Since 2010, Sue Stamp BA (60s). After completing her degree in English Lit at Westfield College, London, she gained her teaching qualifications from the now defunct Philippa Fawcett Teacher Training College. Was then offered a place on the Selfridges training programme, ‘where I stayed until I had my first child in the late 70s,’ she says. When she did finally take the plunge, jobs included working in international schools in Africa for 10 years, where she climbed the ranks to middle management. Began teaching in Bucks in 2003 (also becoming SENCo) and from there, became assistant head into Bearbrook School, Aylesbury, then deputy head at Waddesdon School, before moving here.

Any staff member who’s been at this school longer than Mrs Stamp will tell you that it has been on ‘quite...

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.
