Suffolk: More Pupils Get First Choice School
Suffolk County Council is telling Heart new figures show that 97.20% of students applying for a place at one of Suffolk's high or upper schools got their first preference place.
This figure is up from 95.61% last year.
The county council has sent out letters and emails today to parents and carers informing them of the outcome of their child's application to high and upper school.
County Councillor Graham Newman, Portfolio Holder for Children, Schools and Young People's Services, said; "I am thrilled to see this increase on last year's figures. We have some superb schools in Suffolk so I am delighted to see even more pupils able to go to the school of their choice, it's fantastic. Progressing to secondary school and beginning preparations for GCSEs is an important moment for any young person, so the more we can do to make the transition right for the student, the better. I wish everyone starting a new school in September every success and I hope they settle in quickly to their new surroundings."
It's happened just days after a 16 year old boy was also stabbed in the town.
Five people have been arrested in connection with a stabbing in Ipswich over the weekend.
The family of an 83 year old man murdered in East Harling, have thanked Norfolk Police.
