More than 80 per cent of pupils across the county will be going to their first choice secondary school in September.

Parents can check which school their children have got into on Northants County Council’s website today or they will receive a letter in the post this week.

And it will be good news for 84 per cent of the 7,200 applicants across the county – an improvement of two per cent on last year.

Just three per cent of pupils did not get a place at any of their top three preferred schools.

Matthew Golby, county council cabinet member for learning, skills and education, said: “Our school admissions team works hard to ensure that children are allocated a place at one of their preferred schools and I’m delighted that an increasing number of families have been offered a place at their first choice school.

“Any families who are unhappy with the place they have been allocated can appeal through the independent appeals process.”
