The Department does not collect this information. The administration of school admissions and the collection of data relating to applications is the responsibility of individual admission authorities.

However, with the introduction of mandatory co-ordinated admission arrangements for secondary intakes for 2005/06 and primary intakes for 2006/07, local authorities should have more easily accessible information on how well parental preferences have been met for all maintained schools in their area.
