What you can appeal and how to make an appeal.
School admission appeal hearings continue to be affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. As a result of the temporary regulations (School Admissions (England) (Coronavirus) (Appeals Arrangements) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2021), we will continue to offer virtual appeal hearings to all appellants.
Appeals will be held using Zoom. You'll need access to a computer, tablet or phone to take part remotely. We will provide you with all the information you need and we will have colleagues to provide you with technical support.
If you are not able to use Zoom please contact us to discuss alternative ways we may be able to conduct your appeal such as telephone conference, by written submission in your absence or in person.
If you're refused a place for your child at your preferred school you have the right to appeal against the decision of the Admission Authority.
