What the parents say...

St Joseph’s School in Tadcaster is a close and caring community. Both of our children have loved been part of this faith school and have had an amazing amount of opportunity and experience in the last few years. They have sung at ‘Young Voices’ at Sheffield Arena, run in cross-country competitions, performed in numerous productions from ‘The Angry Sheep’ to ‘A Midsummers Night Dream’, played football, netball and any other number of sports and attended Out-Door education residentials. And they swim every week! They have both developed a love of reading through school and have both learned how important it is that they care for each other within their school community. The staff know all of the children and ensure that every child in the community feels included and supported. There is an ‘open door’ policy, parents and carers are welcome at any time to discuss concerns - families are welcomed in to open classrooms on a regular basis.

A well-run school with really nice staff. Children like it and they make great progress. Great facilities and outdoor space. Excellent after school club. Worth a look round even if you aren't Roman Catholic, the school has a really caring ethos and knows all the children individually.

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.
