  1. : - Indicates data is not available.
  2. Secondary Data for City of London are not applicable (apart from preference).
  3. Dorset (838) and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (839) are new local authorities following changes to LA boundaries in this region in April 2019. Note that Dorset (838) is not directly comparable to pre-LGR 2019 Dorset (835). Data is shown where available for these new local authorities i.e. 2019 capacity. Where data is not available i.e. 2010 capacity, the data for Pre-LGR 2019 Bournemouth, Pre-LGR 2019 Poole and Pre-LGR 2019 Dorset, if available is shown for information, although the data is not directly comparable with the new local authorities. Quality data is available for Dorset (838) and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (839) and compares the schools in these local authorities to the comparable schools which were under the Pre-LGR local authorities to work out existing/new school places. The new places do NOT reflect places in schools new to the local authority due to the 2019 boundary changes.
