2nd March 2020 The offer of a place in a school will be given.
27th March 2020 This is the date by which an appeal should be submitted to this school for a place if you do not want the one you have been allocated.
This school receives a large number of requests for appeals. Last year for the prospective Year 7 there were over 60 appeals but only 4 were successful.
Provisional dates for current Year 6 for Year 7 appeals:
- Friday 1st May
- Monday 4th May
- Tuesday 5th May
- Thursday 7th May
- Monday 11th May
- Tuesday 12th May
- Thursday 14th May
Once you have registered for an appeal you will be sent a letter and asked to contact the school to confirm you wish to go ahead with your appeal. If the school does not hear from you, by 10th April 2020, then it will be assumed that you do not wish your appeal to be heard.
Your appeal should state your reasons for your request and any additional information/documentation/appendices should be submitted 15 working days before the appeal to allow time for it to be copied and distributed to all the interested parties. At least 10 working days before your appeal, unless you choose to waive this right, you will be sent detailed information regarding the process and also the date, time, place and names of the independent panel members who will hear the appeal. This school is enormously over-subscribed and it is important that you prepare your case, with evidence, very carefully taking note of the guidance that will be sent to you.
All other appeals known as ‘in-year’ casual admissions and ones for Year 7 submitted after 27th March 2020 will be heard within 30 working days of submitting the request.
The school is unable to guarantee that any original work/evidence/folders, submitted as part of the appeal, will be returned. Appellants may wish to submit copies in advance and then take important original documents verifying evidence to the appeal.
Appellants are respectfully asked to note that an excessive amount of supporting evidence should not be necessary. Guidance regarding this matter will be given once the appeal has been submitted.
If you have any queries regarding appeals, then please contact Mrs Bell at the school who will be able to help you.
