School Appeals


If you have not been offered a place at the school you wanted you are entitled to appeal against the refusal.

Appeals are heard by panels which are independent of the ​council, schools and governing bodies. The panel follows the School Admission Appeals Code drawn up by the Department for Education with advice from the Local Government Ombudsman.

Most appeals are arranged by our Admissions team but some schools arrange their own appeals. You can find out which schools arrange their own appeals by using the following documents:
