Cllr Laurie Burton, cabinet member for children and learning, said: “I am very pleased that 84% of applicants received offers for their first preference and 98% have one of their top three. We make every effort to ensure that young people of secondary school age who have applied are offered a place.
“Whilst the majority of pupils have got their preferred school place, I am conscious that there are a small number of disappointed families who did not receive any of their top three choices, and I would like to encourage those families to communicate any concerns they may have with the school admission officers.
“The Council remains committed to supporting and continually improving all of our schools across the City, which will help to ensure that there are sufficient places offering good quality and choice to local parents and carers.”
