Today’s national allocation day for secondary school places sees more Reading parents getting the first choice for their children than last year. 72.6% of students got their first choice secondary school up by 8.6% from last year. With 11.8% getting their second choice and 5.85% getting their third choice, that means over 90% of our students were offered one of their top 3 choices. Of the students that will need to be diverted, most have been offered places in Reading schools.
These admissions show the faith Reading parents have in our schools with more parents than ever choosing to send their children to our schools. It also demonstrates the good pupil place planning and efficiency of the admissions team at Brighter Futures For Children. We would like to thank them for their hard work as well as all of the teams at our Secondary Schools.
