Independent Appeal arrangements

Any pupil refused the offer of a place has the right of appeal. Appeals are administered by an independent panel and the school follows the statutory requirements in both the DfE School Admission Appeals Code (2022) and the DfE School Admissions Code (2021) when organising admission appeals.

Parents/carers who wish to make an independent appeal for a place for their child must contact the school for the relevant information.
