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

Like many special schools, Mowbray is changing to meeting the needs of very complex pupils; currently we are seeing a rise in admissions of ASD pupils and in particular children with Asperger's. To accommodate such children, we work in partnership with local mainstream schools, this allows pupils to access a variety of GCSE courses at those schools, with specialist staffing support. We have created a specialist ASD resource for very complex primary aged pupils, run by staff with high expertise in this area. Currently 25 per cent of our pupils have ASD. We are also seeing a rise in pupils with emotional difficulties, this affects their educational attainment, but not necessarily their cognitive abilities; their needs are enhanced through individual learning programmes, college courses and work placements. We have partnerships with the Speech and Language Resource which educates 30 primary aged pupils of whom approximately 75 per cent successfully return to mainstream education by secondary transfer. The school is in a beautiful part of the world and is resourced and equipped to a very high standard. Parents are most welcome to contact the headteacher, who will be happy to discuss our provision with you and show you around our school.

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.
