Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Schools and Learning Linda Kemeny said: “Despite the pressure on places from a huge rise in demand, I’m pleased that so many parents have been offered a primary school of their choice.
“This is mainly thanks to the biggest school expansion project in Surrey’s history, which has created over 500 more primary places for the next academic year alone.
“Despite the extra strain put on resources by a booming birth rate, I have no doubt we can continue to give our children the excellent education they deserve.”
