The figures for the borough, released today (Monday 1, March), reveal:
- 94 per cent of pupils received one of their preferences

- 86 per cent of pupils received one of their top 3 preferences

Cllr Tom Bruce, Cabinet Member for Education, Children and Youth Services, Hounslow Council, said:
“It’s a nerve-wracking time for pupils, parents and carers waiting to find out whether they will get a place at one of their chosen schools, and which is why I’m delighted to hear that the overwhelming majority of pupils have been offered their number one choice of school. Also, an incredible 94 per cent of students have now received an offer for one of their six preferred schools.
“Hounslow is lucky to have excellent schools that provide high-quality education for our children. As we come out of the pandemic, I look forward to Hounslow’s schools re-opening their doors to this new year group starting in September.”
