Number of Redbridge children accepted into first-choice secondary schools lower than London average
The proportion of pupils in the borough who have been accepted into their chosen secondary schools is below the London average.
Approximately 67 per cent were accepted into their first-choice schools this week, with nearly 14 per cent given their second choices and six per cent their third.
The London average for pupils being offered their top choice was 69 per cent, with 90 per cent accepted into one of their first three choices.
In Redbridge, 87 per cent got a place at one of their top three schools.
The Recorder has put in a request to Redbridge Council for a comment.
