A parents guide to school admission appeals

Important deadlines

The deadline for lodging an appeal is 20 school days from the date of notification that your application was unsuccessful. Any appeals submitted after the deadline will still be heard but timescales may vary.

The usual timescales for hearing appeals are below:

  • For applications made in the normal main admissions round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals;
  • For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged;
  • for applications to sixth forms:
    • where the offer of a place would have been conditional upon exam results, appeals must be heard within 30 school days of confirmation of those results;
    • where the offer of a place would not have been conditional upon exam results, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals;
  • For applications for in-year admissions, appeals must be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.

We only hold appeals during term time.
