This year well over nine out of 10 parents (95.2%) secured their first secondary school preference in North Yorkshire, the same high figure as last year.

All children have received an offer of a school place and only 63 children have not received a place at any of their preferred secondary schools out of a total 5,783 applying.

County Councillor Arthur Barker, North Yorkshire’s executive member for schools said:

“This is good news for North Yorkshire.

"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.”
