Secondary place crunch to hit a third of councils

Urgent action is needed to prevent a shortage of secondary school places in a third of local authorities in England within five years, councils say.

The latest predictions suggest 49 out of 152 councils will have more pupils than secondary places by 2019-20.

Local Government Association analysis of official figures suggests 80,716 new secondary places will be required then.

The Department for Education says it had provided local authorities with the funding they need for new places.

It added: "It is now up to them to spend this money efficiently and effectively."
