Timeline of Appeal Process

September 2019 entry

Appeals resulting from applications which are turned down for admission in September 2019 will be heard according to the following timetable:

Allocation letters sent out     

Appeals lodged by      

Appeals will be heard in two stages between

16th April 2019

5pm on 13th May 2019

 June -  July 2019

Appeals lodged after these dates will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 school days of being lodged, whichever is the later date.

Applicants will be sent notification of their appeal hearing at least 10 clear school days in advance of the hearing.

Applicants will be sent a copy of the school's case at least seven clear working days in advance of the hearing.

The Appeal Hearing

The Academy will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy.  

The Panel will consist of 3 people (2 will have education experience and one will be an independent person with no education experience).

The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal i.e. the prejudice that one more student would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the students already attending the Academy, also taking into account the Academy's published admission arrangements.  

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the Parents.
