Preferences may be expressed for any school within or outside Reading, including grammar schools, voluntary aided schools, foundation schools and Academies.

On 1 March 2010, letters will be sent 2nd class post by Reading Borough Council to all parents/carers living in Reading who completed an on-time application, offering a secondary school place for their child in September 2010. Parents/carers who made an online application will be able to view the outcome of their application online from 1 March 2010.

indication of the academic standard it represents.


Which seems a step in the right direction! :wink:
