School Description

Dallam School converted to become an academy school from August 2011. The school is managed by the governing body and is part of a charitable trust. There is no managing chain or federation. When its predecessor, also known as Dallam School, was last inspected by Ofsted it was judged to be outstanding. Boarding provision for up to 128 students is provided at the Heversham site, one mile from the main school site. This was inspected in March 2012. A report is available on the Ofsted website. The school is an average-sized secondary school. Most students are from White British backgrounds. A small minority are from minority ethnic backgrounds and speak English as an additional language. Many of these students are from overseas and board at the school. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is above average. A well-below-average proportion of students is supported at school action plus or has a statement of special educational needs. A well-below-average proportion of students are eligible for pupil premium funding. (The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those children that are looked after by the local authority.) Alternative courses are provided for a small number of students at Kendal College. The school is an International Language College and specialises in modern foreign languages. It is an Adventure Learning School, which is a philosophy based on learning and teaching through adventure. The school offers the International Baccalaureate in the sixth form. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ progress and attainment. The school has a community college that provides educational opportunities for the community.

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.

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 last 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.
