Year 7 appeals – September 2020
Year 7 places will be offered, via the local authorities, on 2nd March 2020. 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 (available below) to the Admissions Team at the local authority to join the waiting list.
Timeline for appeals
- Deadline for submitting an appeal form: 30th March 2020
- Appeals received by deadline to be heard within 40 school days of deadline: 16th June 2020
If your appeal is received after the deadline for submitting appeals, your appeal request will still be accepted, however, depending on when the form is received, it may not be possible to hear your appeal before the end of the academic year (for this Academy, this is the 17th July 2020).
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.
In-year appeals are heard within 30 school days of receipt of the appeal form.
