School Appeals

If your application for a school place is unsuccessful, you can appeal to an independent Appeal Panel.

Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Education Appeals

We are following Government guidance on School Admission Appeals and Exclusion Reviews during the coronavirus pandemic. The Independent Appeal Panel Members are unpaid and trained volunteers, many of whom are in self-isolation due to the current Government advice. There may therefore be unavoidable delays in progressing and hearing appeals and changes to how appeals are heard as we maintain our primary focus on the wellbeing of our residents, Panel Members and staff.
