Parents across the Horsham district yesterday (Thursday April 16) found out whether or not their child has got into their preferred primary school.
For the first time ever, the announcements all over England were made on the same day and record numbers of children are expected to miss out on their parents’ first choice.
In a tweet from its official Twitter account, West Sussex County Council wrote that 89 per cent of children in the county were allocated their first choice school.
