This is a broadly average-sized school which has held specialist language college status since 1997 and which serves a large rural area. The school is fed by over 30 primary schools and more than a third of students come from the out-of zone areas of Shropshire, North Wales and other areas of Cheshire. The percentage of students known to be eligible for free school meals is below average. The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is well below that usually found and there are very few at early stages of learning English. There is an above-average percentage of students with special educational needs and/or disabilities and this has doubled since the previous inspection. Bishop Heber is an accredited Healthy School and holds the Artsmark Silver and International School awards.
This pupil heat map shows where pupils currently attending the school live.
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 last School Census (released annually in July).
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.
