Youngsters who applied for secondary school places in Hillingdon have been offered one of their top three choices more than in any neighbouring borough.
For the second year running, 93% made it into one of their top three selections.
The borough’s secondary schools received a record 3,054 applications this year.
But despite this increased demand, they performed 6% better than the London average at offering pupils one of their top three choices.
The latest figures also show that 74% of children who applied for a secondary school place in Hillingdon were offered their first choice, compared to 68% across London as a whole.
In Harrow, Hounslow and Ealing, first choice places were offered to 68%, 67% and 66% of pupils respectively.
Jean Palmer, Hillingdon Council’s deputy chief executive and corporate director of residents services, said: “Hillingdon has seen a steady increase in applications for secondary school places over the last few years so we are pleased to see that we are still able to offer the majority of pupils their first choice.
“We’ve invested £150m into secondary schools as part of our £310m school build programme. We will continue to plan effectively to ensure that we continue to provide every child in Hillingdon with the education they deserve.”
