Details on how to appeal for any school which your child has been refused a place at, as well as details on how to add your child's name to the waiting list, will be contained within the outcome letter. Find out more about appeals.

Only one offer of a school place for each child can be held at any one time. This means that if you submit a new application for your child, your new preferences will automatically supersede any preferences named on your earlier application. If any of your new preferences are agreed, the place previously offered will automatically be withdrawn.
