School preference

You have a legal right to express a preference for which school you want your child to go to. This isn't the same as being able to choose.

Where you've told us of a preference for a particular school and there are places we'll try to offer you a place at that school. However, there's no automatic right to a place at a particular school and it may not always be possible to offer a place at your preference.
