The annual admissions round is co-ordinated by local authorities. The Department does not collect information on the level of oversubscription at individual schools, but does collect preference data at local authority level. These tell us how many parents received an offer of a place at one of the schools for which they expressed a preference. From 2014 we will be collecting preference data at pupil level and we will then be able to look at individual schools and academies.
