What the school says...

As one of the leading specialist schools in the country, Millais School has an enviable reputation for academic success which was further enhanced by our designation as an 'Outstanding' school by Ofsted in 2010. Whilst we are delighted to receive such an accolade for the exceptional quality of education we provide, it also reinforces the message we constantly give to our pupils - namely to set their sights high.

We are confident that our aspirations for your daughter will challenge and inspire her. We hope that she will leave us as a happy, enthusiastic individual who has achieved her academic potential, with confidence, skills and values she needs to succeed in an ever changing world.

The governors, staff, pupils, parents and I are very proud of this school and its achievements. We make exceptional claims but if you take the opportunity to come and see for yourselves, then I think you will share our enthusiasm. I look forward to meeting you. Further information is available on the Millais website.

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.
