Pupils in Northwood, Ruislip and beyond had a 99.3 per cent chance of being offered one of their preferred primary school places as Hillingdon is ranked second in the capital.
This year, Hillingdon Council processed 3,664 primary school applications, with 93.7 percent of children offered their parents’ first preference and 98.7 per cent offered a place at one of their parents’ top three preferred primary schools.
Cllr Susan O’Brien, cabinet member for education and children’s services, said: “I am delighted to see so many children in Hillingdon receive their parents’ preferred primary school place. In Hillingdon, we have many good and outstanding rated schools, and I am confident that every child will get the best learning experience from their primary school.
“Education remains a top priority for the council and we continue to put families first with the continued investment in our school building and expansion programme to ensure children get the best start in life.”
