What says..

‘Shoot for the moon and even if you miss you’ll land among the stars – that’s the message for pupils and for a deprived area like this, it’s hard to exaggerate the impact,’ summed up a parent. Social justice is the driver, goal transformational education ensuring that every able child gets top results. They’ve demanded, to some initial consternation, as big a proportion of families from disadvantaged backgrounds as possible. Cracking team of teachers is key. Highly qualified subject specialists, including physics grads from Oxford and Imperial, a geography grad from Cambridge and a maths teacher with a Phd. A lot have done...

What the school says...

Reach Academy Feltham is a small school for 4-19 year olds that aims to transform the lives of all of our pupils by providing them with the skills, attitudes and academic qualifications to flourish in any career and live happy and fulfilled lives.
Our school offers the very best education and is unique in a number of ways: we teach pupils from Reception through to Year 13; our school is small, with only 60 pupils in each year, ensuring strong personal relationships; every pupil works towards top grades and the opportunity to succeed at a top university; committed teachers do their utmost to ensure that pupils realise their potential; we expect all pupils to work hard and be respectful of others at all times.

Reach Academy Feltham is a publicly funded, independently-governed school which provides education free of charge to local children. We are a mixed, non-denominational school.

English degree from Cardiff and a master’s in education leadership; previously taught in Birmingham. Was part of the Getting Ahead London programme, which supports leaders aiming for headteacher roles. ‘I came out of university feeling really angry about the inequalities in the system,’ she told us.

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.
