Council sympathy over twin schooling

A council in West Yorkshire says they sympathise with a mother after only one of her twin sons was given a place at the local school. Maggie Wilby is having to home school Ben, while Oliver goes to school

Wakefield Council said the school of choice is very popular and over-subscribed.

We have every sympathy with Mrs Wilby wanting to get her twins into the school and when one place came up she decided to take that and to home educate the other twin. We are continuing to work with family to find a way forward for the twins to be together in one school.”
