Am I right in thinking that if you received an offer of a secondary place, for example your seconds choice, you can be asked to stay on the waiting list of a lower preference school?

Yes you can ask to do this.
It won't be assumed that you are on the list already though so it isn't a question of staying on it, more of asking to be added to it. It's best to do this ASAP as the lists will start to move in a couple of weeks.

Even if you are in a region where people are automatically added to lists, you'll still need to ask (usually in writing) since they assume anyone with their 2nd choice definitely does not want to hold out for their 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th choice otherwise.
