The deadline for online applications for secondary school places is being extended for a week following a power unit failure that disrupted Sunderland City Council computing facilities last week.

Parents of youngsters on Wearside will now have until Sunday, November 6, to apply online for a secondary school place for their child.

People can apply by visiting www.sunderland.gov.uk/admissionsonline to complete their application.

Parents can express up to three preferences for secondary schools and will get to find out on March 1 next year if their application has been successful.
