A total of 95.29 per cent were given their first choice preference, 2.67 per cent were allocated their second – while 0.78 were given their third choice.

Welcoming the figures, St Helens Council’s Cabinet Member for Developing Young People, Councillor Sue Murphy, said: “Every year we work exceptionally hard with our secondary schools to ensure that parents and guardians are allocated one of their preferences – and I’m delighted to see that this is the case for September 2020.

“If any parent or guardian has any questions about their application - I would ask them to contact the School Admissions Team on 01744 671030.”
