Kingston parents lose out (again)

The latest figures on Secondary School Applications and Offers for Kingston upon Thames make depressing reading for parents. These show that only 60% of parents got the secondary school of their choice.

Given the diversity of schools locally and their geographic distribution, most of the 40% of parents who failed to get their first choice school will have had to settle for something very different from what they wanted.

And all this comes as many young children are still without a Reception place for next September.

Providing a good school place is one of THE main services that people need from their council and Kingston is failing to do this.
