Secondary school admissions

LETTERS have been sent out to parents telling them the outcome of their applications for secondary school places for September.

Nearly all parents in the East Riding of Yorkshire got places for their children at their preferred school.

Of the 3,058 applications received, 3,001 (98.5 per cent) got places at their first choice school and 3,048 (99.7 per cent) got places at one of their three choices of school.

10 children have had to be given places at schools where their parents did not express a preference.
