Hi Guest 1963
The figures are available broken down by school for Bucks for 2006 entry, and the 2007 figures should be available any day.
Note that this only tells you how many children who live within catchment
and did not receive their 1st preference school. It does not tell you how many children from out-of-county applied for the most popular schools and did not receive a place.
To save you squinting at the figures, the only oversubscribed schools in Bucks in 2006 were Beaconsfield High, Aylesbury High and Dr Challoners. Between them they turned away 36 children against an admission number of 510 places.
There may be a clue in all of this to the "headline figures" that the newspapers love so much - not all of the children turned away actually lived in catchment for those schools, and therefore probably never stood a chance of gaining a place.
