Notes to editors

Last year Birmingham City Council's school admissions and pupil placements team offered advice and guidance to parents/carers and pupils and processed over 15,000 applications for secondary school places.

The number of parents/carers who were offered their first preferred school last year rose to 73.6%, an increase of over 5% on the previous year, and almost 95% of parents/carers were offered one of their preferred schools.
