Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Education and Skills at Worcestershire County Council, Councillor Marcus Hart said: "The transition up the educational ladder is a big step for children, and we aim to make this change as smooth as possible.

"We are pleased that with admission for September 2019 every child that applied had a place offered to them, with over 91% getting their first-choice preference and a further 5.5% getting their second-choice preference.

"It's not too late to apply for the school of your choice however it is especially important that the deadline for application is met to avoid missing out on a place".

Letters and guides on starting school or transitioning to a new school have been sent to schools and have been distributed to those eligible to transition to new schools next year, there is a secure online system where parents can create an account and submit an application.
