Secondary school appeals
We will try to offer you the school place you most want,
but may not be able to do this. If more people want places at a
school than the school has room for, it uses its admission criteria
to put children in priority order to decide which of them should be
offered places. We use these lists, together with your list of
preferred schools, to make the highest offer possible.
If you want to appeal for a place at any (or all) of the schools
you asked for but were not offered, you need to complete an appeal
Read this guidance (PDF, 684k) (which includes the appeal form)
for more details.
