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 2021 admissions, your appeal form should be completed and returned by no later than 2 April 2021 (secondary) and 14 May 2021 (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
