Year 7 appeals – September 2019
Year 7 places will be offered, via the local authorities, on 1st March 2019. Children who cannot be offered a place, due to there being more applications than there are places, can ask to remain on a waiting list. Parents need to return the waiting list form to the Admissions Team at their local authority to join the waiting list.

These appeals are for children transferring between schools mid-year. You can make a formal appeal to an independent appeal panel, for any school that you have applied for where admission has been refused. This is a legal process and places are not ‘reserved’ for appeal panels to offer. As a guide, one in five appeals are successful.
In-year appeals are heard, where possible, within 30 school days of receipt of the appeal form.
