What the school says...

Sackville is a thriving comprehensive school with a large and successful sixth form. its GCSE results have soared over recent years, with 73% of students achieving at least 5 A*-C grade passes including English and maths at GCSE in 2015, placing it amongst the highest schools in West Sussex. Both English and maths see C+ grades at over 80% and the same levels of progress from key stage 2 at 86%. All of these figures are significantly above both county and national averages. Sackville enjoyed a particularly successful Ofsted inspection in Spring 2015 and holds the UNICEF Rights Respecting Award which reflects its positive and caring ethos. Standards of behaviour are very good; expectations are unashamedly high. ...Read more

What the parents say...

Despite the issues of high pressure exam stress that the Government National Curriculum puts the kids under, I feel that Sackville genuinely works hard to support the pupils and I have had two sons at the school, and the Maths and Science departments in particular have been excellent.

2015 Good Schools Guide Awards

  • Excellent performance by Boys taking Design & Technology Resistant Materials at an English Comprehensive School (GCSE)
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.
