September 2020 Entry – Appeal Information

If your child is due to start secondary school in September 2020 you can appeal between 2 March and 27 March 2020 to guarantee that your appeal is heard by June 2020. Appeals made after this date will be heard within 40 school days of 29 March or 30 school days after being made, whichever is the later date.

Appeal hearing
The hearing lets you explain to an independent appeal panel why you think your child should be given a place at the school and lets the school explain why it could not offer your child a place.
Appeal hearings usually take 30 minutes and are held Monday to Friday between 9 am and 4.30 pm.
We’ll send you the details and a copy of the school’s case at least 10 school days before the hearing. If you want to send us any additional evidence you must make sure that we get it at least 5 school days before the hearing date.

We will write to tell you the panel’s decision as soon as possible. We cannot tell you the decision by telephone.
If your appeal is unsuccessful, you can’t lodge another appeal to the same school for the same school year, unless you can show your circumstances have changed since the first appeal.
