Almost half of children in areas of highest demand fail to get offer from preferred school as admissions numbers rise.

Tens of thousands of children have failed to get into their first choice of secondary school, with almost half of children in some London boroughs losing out as councils scramble to provide enough places to meet growing demand.

At the end of national offer day on Tuesday, when more than half a million children in their final year of primary school find out which secondary school they will be attending in September, thousands learned they had not got into any of their six chosen schools.
