The figures were released today on National Primary Offer Day by the Pan-London Admissions board, which is responsible for the co-ordination of school admissions across the capital.

The figures for Hounslow, released today (Tuesday 19, April), reveal:

  • 97% of applicants have been offered a place at one of their six preferred schools.
  • 96% have been offered one of their top three schools.
  • 85% have been offered their first preference school.

Primary school places in London have been co-ordinated through the Pan-London Admissions scheme since 2011. The scheme aims to ensure the application process for primary school admissions is simple with a fairer distribution of places available across London.

Vicki Taylor, Assistant Director of Education and Skills at Hounslow Council, said:

“It’s fantastic that over 97 per cent of children starting primary school in September will attend one of their preferred schools, and a large majority have received a place at their first-choice school.

“We are excited to be welcoming another new year group to the schools in our borough, which provide high-quality education, despite the challenges presented by the pandemic in the last two years. This is backed up by Ofsted’s recent inspections that have rated every school in the borough as ‘outstanding’ or ‘good’.”
