This year well over nine out of 10 parents (95.2 per cent) secured their first secondary preference in North Yorkshire.

This is a higher figure than many other places in the country and an improvement on last year for the county.

All children have received an offer of a school place and only 52 children (no more than 0.8 per cent) compared to 88 last year have not received a place at any of their preferred secondary schools out of a total 6,267 applying.

County Councillor John Watson, North Yorkshire’s executive member for schools said: “We are delighted that so many of our families have once again been able to gain their first preference from their choice of schools. As a local authority we work with schools across the county to make sure all of them deliver the highest standards of education so that families who are not given first preferences will nevertheless be able to send their children to good schools.”
