The GLA will shortly be releasing its Projected demand for school places report. This report will present a projected number of state school places needed at secondary phase in 2016/17. The report does not disaggregate by school year or child's age.

GLA published population projections provide population estimates by single year of age. The latest round estimates project 98,100 11 year olds living in London in 2016. However, it is important to note that not all of these children will require a state school place and that some children who live outside the GLA boundary will require a school place within London.
