Delight as most Central Bedfordshire pupils granted first choice school

Central Bedfordshire has maintained its high standard in providing secondary and upper schools as almost all young people have been granted one of their preferred choices for the 2019/20 academic year.

Today (1st March) is National Secondary Offer Day, when parents and pupils across the country find out what the future holds for them and in Central Bedfordshire as, overall, 99 per cent have been offered one of their top three preferred choices.

In terms of pupils granted their first preferences, there have also been improvements in both secondary and upper schools.

For pupils that have applied to transfer to upper schools from September, 97 per cent have been granted their first preference. This is up 2 per cent from last year. While in secondary schools, the figure is up 4 per cent from last year, to 96 per cent.

Councillor Steven Dixon, Executive Member for Families, Education and Children, said: “We work very hard to ensure that children can attend a good local school, and we are delighted that today’s figures show that we are not only maintaining our consistent high standards, but improving on them.”

There were just under 3,000 applications, most of which came via the council’s online system, with 96 per cent of applicants to upper schools done that way, while 90 per cent of applicants for secondary school applied online.

That’s the quickest way of finding out the news as anyone applying online or requesting an email notification hears the news today. For those who submitted a paper application, decision letters were sent out yesterday by post.
