George Bridgeford, three, looks more than happy after his mum was the winner of Northamptonshire County Council’s school admissions early bird competition.

Kylie Bridgeford was presented with her prize after applying for a primary school place for her son before the early bird deadline on October 31.

She went along with George to pick up her brand-new iPad, which was presented to her by Northampton Saints lock Mark Sorenson on November 22.

The competition was held to encourage applications being made early as those which are received after the deadline can result in parents being unable to secure a place in any of their preferred schools.
