92 per cent of students get place at one of their top three schools despite rise in number of applicants
Harrow Borough Council says the number of pupils offered a place at one of their top three choices of secondary school has risen by four per cent.
Figures shows 92 per cent of future year sevens in Harrow were offered a place at one of their top three choices of secondary school and 71 per cent offered their first choice.
Last year 88 per cent were offered a top-three choice and 69 per cent their first choice.
There was a slight increase in the number of people applying for 2013 places as the council received 2,329 applications on time, compared to 2,303 last year.
Parents whose children were not allocated a place at one of their preferred schools have been offered a place at an alternative school.
