What says..

Life changing? You bet. ‘Before we had to ask her a question and she would nod or shake her head. This year we were able to ask her for the first time what she wanted for Christmas. She spelled it out very quickly - a home spa with bubbles and jets. Well, whoever would have thought of that?’ said her mother with delight. There’s an aquarium with tropical fish, and boards crammed with photos showing the children out and about. Boarders have a big programme of clubs at evenings and weekends – woodturning, band practice, Dungeons and Dragons, pampering, iPad club to name a few...

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head of school and college

Currently recruiting for a new head.

Treloar's principal is Martin Ingram BSc PGCE.

Academic matters

The pupil body spans the range from P levels through to A levels. There are three strands in the school – those with above average/average cognitive levels; entry learners, who are just below mainstream cognitive ability; and integrated complex students, who are at P levels and always will be at P levels. A lot of children in the third group have visual impairments, no hearing and no speech. Even within these groups, lessons are differentiated and tailored to each pupil. We saw a KS2 class with complex needs learning the numbers one to six through the story of Henry VIII and his wives. Each was working with an individual LSA and one child was...

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

Treloar School provides first class education, therapy, care and independence training for young people with physical disabilities from all over the UK. Students may have a sensory or communication impairment or a learning disability as well as being physically disabled. Academically our range is very broad - we offer the full National Curriculum and GCSEs, ASDAN and modular programmes at Key Stage 4. The majority of our students are wheelchair users. Physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, teaching, care and nursing staff all work together to ensure each child achieves the best they can - in all aspects of life. Developing independence - of thought and action - is at the heart of what we do. We work to enable young people and equip them for the life they want. Our medical centre is staffed 24 hours a day and handles routine in-patient requirements, post-operative care and medical care and support for young people with life-limiting conditions such as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

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
