London schools: Around 70% Year 6 pupils get first choice - report

The Pan London Admissions Scheme (PLAS) said there were 90,348 applications for secondary school places, a decrease of 2.48% compared to last year.

PLAS warned the reduction could impact funding for schools, who will now face "difficult decisions" around budgets.

It comes as offers were emailed out on Friday evening.

The report found that 81,324 children - 90% of all who applied - were offered a place at one of their top three preferences of secondary school.

A total of 63,757 Year 6 pupils - about 70% - got into their first preference school.
