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.

Special Education Needs

At St Anthony's we aim to ensure that all pupil needs, particularly those with SEN, are met by a personalised curriculum and strong pastoral care. We aim to identify all needs early, and effectively manage transition, at all key stages from KS2 to entry to the world of work, college and university. Our SEN provision uses our key resource, an experienced and stable staff, to provide a happy and secure working environment taking into account the needs of the individual working in partnership with students, parents and other agencies. During our Ofsted Inspection the school was graded 1 for Inclusion and 2 for SEN (the highest two grades). The school was described as: 'a very good school with some excellent features'. St Anthony's works in partnership with diocesan and local authority schools across the region on a huge range of initiatives. It was invited to become a Beacon School by the DfES (while this initiative was in place) and has been a Technology College since 1999. Results in our core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Modern Foreign Languages are a strength. The curriculum offered is very broad at KS3 and KS4 with 35 subjects offered to advanced level.

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.
