Concerns about the secondary school transfer system in Three Rivers were taken to Westminster this week.
Councillor Chris Lloyd accompanied a group of parents to the Palace of Westminster, where they met with South West Hertfordshire MP David Gauke, Nick Gibb MP, shadow minister for Children, Schools and Families, and civil servants, on Monday.
This year, 202 pupils in Three Rivers and 193 in Watford were not allocated one of their three preferred choices, though this has now been reduced to 157 and 173 cases respectively through the appeal process.
At Westminster, parents told MPs they wanted more places at schools considered to provide â€œgood quality educationâ€
