What you can appeal and how to make an appeal

Impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on Education Appeals

We're monitoring government guidance and considering the possible impact of the coronavirus on School Admission Appeals, Exclusion Reviews and School Transport Appeals.

Independent Appeal Panel Members are unpaid and trained volunteers so there may be unavoidable delays to progressing and hearing appeals this year due to coronavirus.

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.
