Appealing for a School Place

If you are unable to get a place at the school you prefer, you have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel. An appeal is independent of the Local Authority, the school and its Governors.

You can download the ‘School Admissions Appeals Guide’ and appeals form below. Further information on the appeals process is also available by clicking on the links below.

There are two main categories of appeals:

  • Midyear - when you need to appeal for a place in a school now. You should appeal as soon as possible. It will be heard within thirty school days of it being received.
  • Block Appeal - when you need to appeal for the Reception, Junior or Year 7 main September intake. As we can receive several appeals for one school, they are held in blocks dates during the late spring and summer.

You can appeal for more than one school at a time and you will need to complete separate appeal forms for each school.

Children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan

The appeal process for a child with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan is different. You should contact your named case worker for further information.
