Cllr Scott Edwards, North Northamptonshire Executive member for Children, Families, Education and Skills said: “I would encourage parents who are applying for a school place for September 2022 to submit their applications in good time and before the deadline.

“The School Admissions system gives families the opportunity to tell us which schools they would prefer to send their children to.

 

“While most people are successful at getting a place at their preferred school, there are steps that parents can take to maximise their chances. Submitting an application form on time is the most crucial step, followed by nominating a second and third preference school and including your closest school as one of your preferences.”
