Appeals will be heard in line with the School Admission Code (2012). An Independent Appeal Panel will be arranged to consider our reasons for refusal and the parent/carer’s reasons for wanting their child to attend the school. You will get at least 14 calendar days’ written notice of an appeal date.

The decision of the Independent Appeal Panel is binding on both the school and the parent/carers.

In light of the current situation regarding the Covid-19 virus, we have taken the decision to extend the date by which admission appeals need to be returned to 30th April 2020 (noon).

Depending on the situation at the time, it is hoped appeals will be held at the end of June 2020.
