Of the 7,063 offers made to secondary schools, 94 per cent of the children will receive their first preference school (6,633 children) Lincolnshire county announced last Friday (March 1).

A total of 24 children will be offered a local school that isn’t one of their preferences compared to 39 last year. Parents have until the end of March to lodge an appeal.
