In-Year appeals

These appeals are for children transferring between schools mid-year.

Before you can make an appeal, you must first have applied to the Academy for a place by completing a recent In-Year Application Form for the local authority. Details of how to do this can be found on the Admissions page under the heading In-year admissions. Once you have received a letter advising you that a place cannot be offered, you can then proceed to make an appeal for the Academy if you wish to.

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 will be heard by the local authority as soon as it is possible to do so.
