School Description

Bartholomew School is an average-size secondary school. The number of students on roll, including in the sixth form, is expected to rise in September. The school converted to academy status on 1 March 2012. The predecessor school of the same name was inspected in May 2009 and judged to be outstanding. The school has specialist status for technology and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). It is also a Leading Edge school for its ‘Thinking Voice’ project. The proportion of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for those known to be eligible for free school meals, looked after children and children of service families) is well below the national average, although increasing each year. There are currently two children from service families and one looked after child at the school. The proportion of students from minority ethnic backgrounds is below average, but rising. The largest ethnic group is of White British heritage. There are very small numbers of students from a very wide range of other ethnic groups. Around 4% of students are learning English as an additional language, which is well below the national average. None is at an early stage of learning English. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is lower than the national average. The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well below average. The proportion of students that start or leave school at times other than the beginning of Year 7 is above the national average. The school makes some use of alternative provision for a small group of students in Years 10 and 11 who attend local further education colleges on one day each week to follow vocational courses. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
