The Northampton primary schools that are the hardest to get your child into in 2021
New report reveals the 16 schools in Northampton that were oversubscribed...and how they decided who got a place
Parents and guardians across Northamptonshire learned last Friday, April 16, which primary school their child had been placed in.
More than 8,400 reception places at primary school places were allocated to pupils across Northamptonshire.
This year, 94.3% of applicants secured a place at their first preference school (93.1% in 2020) while the number of families being offered a place at one of their preferred schools is 98.9%, up from 98.6% in 2020.
Additionally, the number of pupils obtaining their first preference for junior school (Year 3) places was 99.5% which was up from 98.9% last year.
For those who were not successful in gaining a place at their preferred school, parents have the right to appeal through the independent admission appeals process.
The next round of primary school place allocations (for late applicants) will take place in May.
Figures from West Northamptonshire Council have revealed which schools in Northampton were oversubscribed for the 2021/22 academic year - and how the places were allocated. All images are taken from Google maps.
