This year 94 per cent of parents in North Yorkshire secured their first secondary school choice for their children, according to the county council.

All the county’s youngsters have received an offer of a school place for September and more than 98 per cent were accepted into one of their preferred choices of secondary school, the authority said.

County Councillor Arthur Barker, North Yorkshire’s executive member for schools, said: “Once again, this is good news for North Yorkshire. We are delighted that so many of our families have 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.”
