What the school says...
Mounts Bay Academy has over 900 students on its roll and was recognised as outstanding in all areas in its 2012 OFSTED inspection.
We believe that all young people are Grade A students; it is our job to nurture the very best in each person by removing barriers to learning and identifying every childs strengths and talents. We are a learning community that aspires to success for all without exception and every student is given an iPad to empower learning anywhere, anytime. In summer 2012, 97.1% of students achieved 5A* to C grades at GCSE, with 60¬hieving 5A* to C including Maths and English.
We develop young people with a positive attitude to learning and life, ready to take on the challenges of our fast-changing world and to make a creative contribution to their community.
By working with the local community and our feeder schools, every child who joins us at Mounts Bay gains access to a unique world of opportunity and experience. There are 134 formal extra curricular activities on offer each week. Talent is celebrated, curiosity is nurtured and every individual is given the chance to shine. ...Read more

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
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 schoolâ€™s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.
The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
