Success in picking schools in Suffolk
More Suffolk pupils have received offers for a place at their preferred secondary school than last year.
Suffolk County Council received 7,427 applications from parents outlining which secondary school they would prefer their children to be educated at from September 2013.
Of those 7,427, 97.4 per cent of applicants received offers for their first preference, and 99.5 per cent of applicants received an offer from one of their three preferences.
There has also been an increase in the number of people choosing to submit an application online, with 68 per cent of online applications having been received this year compared with 48.9 per cent in 2012.
Any applicant who has not secured an offer of a place at one of their preferred schools has the right of appeal to an independent panel, and can do so by contacting the council’s school admissions team on 0845 6000 981 (local rate).
