School place appeals process

If it has not been possible to offer a place at your preferred school(s) the decision will be confirmed in writing.  You have the right to appeal to an independent panel.

  • If the school is a community school, you must request the appeal form from the School Admissions Team

  • If the school is an aided school or academy, you must request the appeal form directly from the school

For September 2023 admissions, your appeal form should be completed and returned by no later than 3 April 2023 (secondary) and 12 May 2023 (primary). If it is received after these dates, it may be heard after the other appeals.

The decision of the panel is final and binding on all parties.
