How to get a group total from a single filtered value?

 How can I get the filtered value of a group from a single value? 
I am looking at pupil numbers by school (individual school code) and the schools locality (multiple schools per locality/catchment)

 

Heres a cut of my data (.Total Pupils is a measure)
pupil numbers by school and locality.PNG

 

I am displaying the number of pupils by school in a bar chart, then the sum of pupils by locality/catchment on a shape map, listing the total by school and locality/catchment 
0.1.PNG

 

When I select a locality/catchment on the map this filters the report correctly, filtering all the schools and the total number of pupils in that locality/catchement
0.2.PNG

 

When I filter the bar chart I would like to disaplay the total number of pupils in the selected school, but the total for the locality/catchment, buut I cant workout the DAX to do this....at the mo it just displays the total for the selected school 😞

My display label is working but I cant calculate the total for the selected locality, can anyone help? 

I tried all sorts to get this working but I am abviously missing something.

The following measure will show you the total for the locality of the school coded selected:

Locality Total = 
var __local = SELECTEDVALUE(Table[Locality]) return
CALCULATE(
    [Total Pupil],
    Table[Locality] = __local,
    ALL(Table[School Code])
)
