Secondary school admissions

Appealing for a place

If your application for a school is unsuccessful, you have the right to have your case heard by an Independent Appeals Panel.

If you wish to appeal for a Year 7 place at a Secondary School, or as part of an in-year request, you should contact the school directly for details of their process as the responsibility for appeals for Academies rests with the individual schools.

Appeals for the following academies are provided via the local authority. More details.

  • Barr's Hill School
  • Coundon Court 
  • Eden Girls School, Coventry
  • Foxford Community School
  • Grace Academy
  • Lyng Hall School
  • President Kennedy School
  • Stoke Park School
