95.7% of Sefton residents that applied for a secondary school place in the borough have been offered their first choice.

Letters and e-mails were sent on national offer day (March 3), informing parents/carers about the offer of a school place for their child for September, 2014.

In total there were 2,916 applications, with 95.7% receiving their first choice while 99 per cent were given at least one of their three choices.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Cabinet Member Children, Schools, Families and Leisure, said: “Making the switch from Primary School to Secondary School is a big step in a pupil’s development and we always aim to make this run as smoothly as possible.

“Yet again our figures are consistently high with more than 95% of pupils being placed in their first choice of secondary school, a similar figure from last year.

“Schools in Sefton are some of the best in the region and it is always very pleasing so many pupils have got their first choice of school. Thanks must go to our Admissions Team who have supported many families during this process.

“Sadly a small number of pupils will have missed out, and any applicant who is unhappy about their secondary school allocation has a right to appeal.”
