Reception Appeals for September 2024

Right of Appeal

Unfortunately, it is not always possible for the School’s Admission Governors to offer your child a place in our school. If your child is refused a place you have the right to appeal against the decision to an independent appeal panel.

When you receive your offer letter, it will include details of the appeals process.

 As our Governors are the Admission Authority for the school, all documentation must be submitted to the school.

Please contact the school ASAP for further details on how to appeal.

How to appeal

Before you start your appeal, read the admissions appeals guide which includes details on:

  • how to prepare your case
  • documents you may wish to include to support your appeal
  • what to expect from the panel
  • how decisions are made

Closing dates and hearings

  • You must submit the notice of appeal to the school by 11th June 2024.
  • Appeal hearings to be held in June and July 2024.

We aim to hold all appeal hearings within 40 days after the deadline. In some exceptional circumstances, we may need to hold hearings after this date.  We will give appellants 10 clear school days’ notice of an appeal hearing date and time.

All appellants will be sent a copy of the school’s case a reasonable time before the date of the hearing.

You will be informed of the decision of the independent appeal panel 7 calendar days after the appeal panel has made the decision.
