Admissions appeals for September 2022 entry
If your child has been refused admission to our academy, you have a legal right to appeal against this decision to an Independent Appeals Panel, which is managed on behalf of the Academy by the Council. Appeals timetable can be accessed via their website.
Appeals must be submitted no later than 20 school days after you receive written notification of the outcome of your application for a school place. Any appeals received after this deadline are unlikely to be considered unless applicants are able to demonstrate extenuating circumstances which prevented the appeal from being submitted on time.
Any appeals submitted after the deadline will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 school days of the appeal being lodged, whichever is the later date.
In-year admission appeals (for parents applying for school places in the middle of a school year) will be heard within 30 school days of your appeal being lodged.
If you wish to appeal against the decision not to offer your child a place, then please appeal via the council at click here
