Appealing for a school place

You may appeal for a place at the school you want if you have not been offered a place.

Impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on appeals

This summer’s appeal hearings will be heard remotely and we will be emailing parents in due course with dates of when these will be arranged.We will do our best to ensure that as many appeals as possible are heard by the standard deadlines but regret that some appeals may be heard later than we would have expected.
