Parents across Worcestershire and Birmingham find out today if their children have made it into their first choice secondary or high school

PARENTS across Worcestershire and Birmingham will find out today whether their child has made it into their first place secondary or high school.

Those with children due to start secondary or high school this September applied before October last year.

Last year, across Worcestershire, there were 6,015 applications – 130 more than the previous year.

And, according to the authority, nine out of every ten children were offered one of their preferred places – an increase to 96.1 per cent, compared to 94.8 per cent for those starting in 2019.

Those who do not get the school of their choice have a chance to appeal.
