Admissions Policies

Appeals for Year R (Academic Year 2024-2025)

You can appeal for any school named on your application that has not been able to offer your child a place.

To do this you will need to complete an appeal request form.

The form and details of where to return it to for each school will be published in the next steps guide on offer day.

The deadline for submitting an appeal is Tuesday 14th May 2024 for offers made on 16th April.

For late applications, appeal requests should be submitted within 20 school days of your application outcome.

You can appeal after these deadlines but your appeal might not be heard at the same time as those submitted on time.

When you appeal you:

  • can ony appeal for schools named on your application
  • can appeal for more than one school at the same time
  • must complete a request form for each school you're appealing for
  • can appeal for a school even if you have accepted another offer.

Schools will not know you have appealed for another school unless you tell them. The appeals for each school are completely independent of each other.
