Parents across Staffordshire find out which secondary schools children will be going to

Staffordshire County Council says 97 per cent of parents got their children into their first choice secondary school.

Families found out yesterday which schools they had been allocated for the new intake in September, with 99 per cent getting one of their top three choices.

County Councillor Liz Staples, cabinet member for education and skills said: “Over nine out of ten parents in Staffordshire have got their first preference school, again beating the national average and showing that in Staffordshire we go that extra mile to match parents up with a preferred school.

“The admissions process can be quite daunting for a lot of parents, but with clear guidance and work with schools and our neighbouring authorities, we can ensure that wherever possible and in the majority of cases, parents will be allocated one of their top three preferred schools.”
