Mapping School Ratings & Catchment Areas
There are a number of factors that you might want to consider when choosing the right school for your children. In the UK you might want to consider Ofsted inspection reports, the school's academic record and the teacher to pupil ratio. You will probably also want to view the school's catchment area, especially if you are looking to move house.
This is where AdmissionsDay can help. AdmissionsDay is a new interactive map which shows the Ofsted ratings, exam performance and demographics of UK schools. It also shows you the rough catchment area for each school.
To view local schools you just need to enter an address or postcode into AdmissionsDay. You can then select to view local primary or secondary schools. The locations of the schools are shown with colored markers. The colors of each school's marker indicates its latest Ofsted inspection rating. If you select an individual school's marker you can also view details on the school's academic results, the number of pupils and the teacher to pupil ratio. You can also select to view a rough guide to the school's catchment area on the map.
