Cllr Bryony Goodliffe, chair of Cambridgeshire County Council’s children and young people’s committee, said: “Our admissions and school place planning teams work tirelessly to make sure pupils get to go to their first choice secondary school, and once again they have done an excellent job.

“It’s encouraging to see that the vast majority will attend one of their top three options which will ensure the transition from primary to secondary school will be as seamless as possible.”
