Figures released by the Department of Education project there will be over half a million more children entering secondary education by 2026. Rising birth rates are fuelling the 20% increase and will require the Government to build around 267 new schools to meet demand.
Analysis of the figures combined with Local Government Association pupil forecasts predict that by 2022/23 up to 125,000 children could face the prospect of missing out on secondary education if the rise in numbers is not addressed.
