MORE parents in Hounslow have received their top choice of primary school compared to London-wide figures.
Every child whose parents applied on time have been offered a place at one of the borough’s primary schools.
Across Hounslow, 83.3 per cent of parents received their first choice compared to 80.6 per cent across London.
Parents receiving one of their top three choices rose to 94.8 per cent (92.2 per cent across London) and 97.3 per cent were offered a place at one of their six preferred schools (95.1 per cent across London).
Councillor Steve Curran, cabinet member for education and housing at the council, said: "Local parents know our primary schools are doing a brilliant job for our children, and demand for places is always high. We’ve worked hard to make sure that we have enough capacity to meet this demand, and will carry on working with schools to make sure we have enough places for the future."
To apply for a school in Hounslow, parents fill in an application form where they put down up to six schools in order of preference and submit to the council by the deadline. Applications are then considered and a place is offered at the highest preference available.
