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

Students who are likely to experience difficulties are identified during a liaison process with Primary Schools prior to transfer. All students are assessed on entry to the school. This information is used to devise support programmes for students who then receive individual work plans tailored to their specific needs. Individual Education Plans which set targets are regularly reviewed and are sent to parents. Fully trained Learning Support Assistants work alongside students in their regular classes. Students may also work in small groups or individually with a specialised SEN Teacher. Dyslexia assessments are undertaken if appropriate. An out of hours Homework Club is run to provide additional help. Students with emotional and behavioural difficulties are closely monitored and supported in a Behaviour Support Unit and follow programmes which reflect the latest thinking in behaviour management. Off site courses to improve team building and social skills are arranged on a regular basis.

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.

Children get into the school from here:

regularly
most years
quite often
infrequently
sometimes, but not in this year
