School appeals

In year appeal form

A change of school at any time other than the normal intake to Primary starting Reception or Secondary starting Year 7.

How to make a school appeal

If you have not been offered a place at your preferred school(s) you have the right of appeal against the decision not to allocate your child a place. Accepting the place you have been offered does not affect your right of appeal.

Appeals received after the closing date will be heard within the schedule, if possible. 

Please note: The deadlines for submitting appeals are shown below. However, as a result of the requirement for the introduction of temporary regulations by Government to enable school appeals to continue during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak there has been a delay in hearing appeals submitted. The temporary amendments to the regulations provide some additional flexibility when dealing with appeals during the outbreak, and help to ensure that appeal timetables work in light of school closures. Once your appeal has been received, we will contact you as soon as possible to confirm arrangements, including dates, which in some cases may not follow the schedule of appeal dates shown.
