More than nine out of 10 parents have learned that they’ve been allocated their first-choice secondary school in Staffordshire.
Of the 8020 offers made, 94.6 per cent were given their first-choice school, up from 93 per cent last year. Nearly 97 per cent have been allocated one of their top three preferred schools.
Parents were given until the end of October to apply for a secondary school. Since then, the county council’s admissions team has been working with school and neighbouring authorities to ensure as many parents as possible receive a place at a preferred school.
