91% of London pupils starting secondary school in September have been offered a place at one of their top three schools, with 71% getting their first choice school, a 5% increase on last year.
Figures from the Pan-London Co-ordinated Admissions Board show that 95% of pupils in London have received a place at one of their six preferred schools.
Parents who have not been allocated a place at one of their chosen schools have either been offered an alternative or will shortly be advised of their options.
