A record number of children in MK have today learned they will attend their first preference secondary school in September.
Milton Keynes Council received a record number of 3,889 applications this year - an increase of 220 children on last year.
Despite this, 94% were granted one of their top four preferred schools and 80% secured their top choice school.
Over the past seven years, Milton Keynes Council has created 4,112 new school places in the borough; building five new schools and helping 18 existing schools expand.
Councillor Zoe Nolan, Cabinet member for Children and Families said: “This has been yet another bumper year for secondary school applications, and we’ve been building and expanding schools to meet demand. We’re committed to having a good school place ready for every child. We’ll continue to invest in our strong network of local schools and there are some really exciting projects in the pipeline.”
A small number of late applications received will be processed during April. Parents who still need to make an application should complete a late application form which is available on the council’s website here.
