School Admission Appeals

Where the governors are unable to offer a place because the school is over-subscribed, parents have the right to appeal to an independent admission appeal panel, set up under the School Standards and Framework Act, 1998, as amended by the Education Act, 2002.

For further information about the appeals process, application forms and other useful information please click on this link:

A school admission appeal form can be located below:
Before completing the appeal form you should read the guidance notes for advice on what to put in your appeal and other important information.

Appeals

Completed appeal forms are to be returned directly to the school, together with any supporting documentation for the attention of Mrs C Munroe, Headteacher’s PA.  Please note that completed appeal forms for a place in Year 7 in September 2022 should be returned to school on or before Monday 21 March 2022.

The school will forward the document(s) to the Clerk to the Governors, Mr J Halshaw, who will organise an independent panel to consider the case. Mr Halshaw will communicate the date and time of the appeal hearing to parents/carers who will be given the opportunity to present their case.

Appeals which are received after the deadline will be slotted into the schedule where this is possible. There is no guarantee that this will happen, and late appeals may be heard at a second round of hearings.
