Primary school places in London have been co-ordinated through the Pan-London Admissions scheme since 2011. The aims of the scheme are to simplify the application process for primary school admissions and ensure a fairer distribution of places available across London.
Steven Forbes, Executive Director of Children’s and Adult Services at Hounslow Council, said:
“I’m delighted that the overwhelming majority of children starting primary school in September will attend one of their preferred primary schools, and every family that applied for a place for their child will receive one. These figures improve on last year’s already strong result.
“As we move out of lockdown, I think we can say the future looks bright for this new year group who will begin attending Hounslow’s excellent schools and benefit from all that a high-quality education can provide for our children.
“I want to say thank you to all the school staff, council officers and the Pan-London Admissions scheme for delivering this great result, and I look forward to Hounslow’s schools opening their doors to this new year group at the beginning of the academic year.”
