School Description

This is a smaller-than-average-size secondary school. The school selects from the top 25% of boys by ability using the Kent test to determine admission into Year 7. Borden Grammar School converted to become an academy in January 2012. When its predecessor school, also Borden Grammar School, was last inspected by Ofsted it was judged to be good. The school’s headteacher has been in post since September 2013. The school has a specialism in sport and a second specialism in modern languages. Approximately one in ten of the school’s population is eligible for the pupil premium, which is additional funding provided for children in local authority care, children of service families and those known to be eligible for free school meals. This proportion is about a third of the national average. There are no children from service families currently on the school’s roll. There are no students eligible for the Year 7 catch-up premium, which is provided by the government to support those students who have not previously reached the expected levels in English and mathematics. Approximately one in nine students is from a minority ethnic group, which is below the national average. A little over 10% of students are disabled or have special educational needs and are supported through school action, this proportion is a little below the national average. A little under 4% of students are supported at school action plus or have a statement of special educational needs, which is about half the national average. Some additional AS- and A-level courses are taken by sixth form students at Fulston Manor School and Highsted Grammar School. This is so that these students can follow courses that are of particular interest or relevance to them. 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.
