Borough-by-borough breakdown of first place school choices in London

More parents in London miss out on their first choice school than anywhere else. Almost 1 in 3 children end up at a secondary school they didn't choose.

90,000 more places are needed in the next two years. Boris Johnson thinks he has the answer. It involves opening 11 new free schools, including six in former police stations.
