What says..

Parents praise the themed approach to learning – with each year group studying a single topic every half term, with a cross-curricular approach thereon. Teaching staff – a good mix of the experienced and young  – are fun. In every classroom we saw, there was a feeling of merriment, creativity, learning through doing and of getting things done with a smile and a light touch. It clearly works - the school consistently dominates the local authority league tables, with reading progress in the top 20 per cent of schools in the country, and writing and maths ...

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headteacher

Since September 2023, Maria Panayiotou.

Entrance

Admission by means of the local authority criteria – which means that, in order of priority, it’s looked after children and SEN, then siblings and after that, living as near as possible. With four applications for every place, this generally means within a quarter of a mile. Local estate agents are big fans - the success of the school, and its neighbouring comprehensive, has had a significant impact on local property prices. Since 2020, two nursery classes with both part- and full-time spaces for up to 60 full-time equivalent places.

Please note: 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.
