What says..

 Once a week, pupils all have financial education. It ranges from ‘youngsters that are becoming familiar with holding a coin or glancing towards money, to youngsters that are actually working out household bills,’ says head. ‘It’s important for our pupils to learn these skills, know how to get the right change, be independent.’ Growing vegetables, keeping chickens, or woodwork gives children a skill and a potential hobby for later life, keeping depression at bay, which can be a particular problem for those with autism spectrum disorder. When the children wanted more chickens, they were told that they needed to make a profit to pay for feed...

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2013, Shivaun Duffy Moriarty. Fine art graduate who started working life as an independent artist, then studied for a PGSE specialising in SEN at Middlesex University. Taught for 12 years at Grove Park Special School, now called The Village, in North London. Got a job as deputy head at Sherbourne Fields in 2010. Delighted to be able to return to Coventry, where her wider family lives, to bring up her two daughters.

Comes from warm, close family and is one of six siblings who are all involved in education. Says that she has her mother to thank for her solution-focused attitude. ‘Nothing was a barrier, nothing was a problem and nothing would stop anybody doing anything. So I’ve always been absolutely immersed in that sort of belief. It was something...

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.
