Almost all pupils will be going to first choice upper school

Written bySUE WEBB

A whopping 99 per cent of Central Bedfordshire’s children will be going to their chosen Upper School when the new academic year starts in September.

The council’s admissions team allocated a total of 2,237 places at schools across the area, with almost every pupil getting a place at their first preference school or academy.

An impressive 89 per cent of parents and carers, up from 83 per cent last year, applied via our website, taking advantage of our time saving online application facility.

Cllr Mark Versallion, executive member for children’s services, said: “Starting Upper School is an important step on the educational journey for all our young people, so it’s fantastic that 99 per cent of them have got places at the schools they wanted to go to.

“I am confident that with our support, and that of their families and schools, they will be able to achieve their academic potential and obtain great results.”
