Appeals Timetable

The information provided is for the 2018 main intakes for Year 7.

Offer day: 1st March 2018

Deadline for us to receive an appeal: Noon 17th April 2018

Begin hearing appeals: 1st May 2018

Finish hearing appeals: 21st July 2018

We hear appeals in office hours during school term time.

Where there are several appeals we will always try to group them together.

In planning appeals we will try to hear them in the order parents prefer and avoid times when parents tell us they are unavailable, but this is not always possible where there are several appeals for the same school.

Appeals received after the deadline will still be heard though may not be heard with those appeals received before the deadline.

It is important to submit your appeal as soon as possible so that it can be heard at the first available opportunity.

It is also in your best interests to do this as decisions are made after each set of appeals and no account will be taken of any appeals not yet heard.

It is therefore possible that if your appeal is not heard until a later date, decisions will already have been made by the Appeal Panel which could have resulted in an increase in the number of pupils attending the school.
