How to Appeal
An appeal must be made in writing on the appropriate form supplied upon refusal of an offer at your preferred school.
Parents who submit an appeal will be given the opportunity to speak before the Appeal Panel if desired. The decision of an Appeal Panel is final and is binding on the Council or the Governors, as appropriate.
In the case of an unsuccessful appeal, further applications for a place at the same school will not be considered during the same academic year unless there are significant and material changes in the circumstances of parents and school.
For more information about the independent appeals process please see our Notes of Guidance Document. A Welsh version of the guidance is also available.
