Appeals for a Reception Intake Place

If your application for a Reception Intake place has been refused by the academy, you have the right to appeal against the decision.

An appeal must be made in writing. An appeal form can be collected from the academy’s reception or downloaded from this page.

Please return the completed appeal form to us within 20 school days* of your child having been refused a place at the academy (“the deadline”). Appeals which we receive by the deadline will be heard within 40 school days of us receiving the appeal form. Appeals received after the deadline will be heard whenever practicable.

Appeals for an In-Year Transfer place 2017-18

If your application for an In-Year Transfer place has been refused by the Academy, you have the right to appeal against the decision.

An appeal must be made in writing. Appeal forms can either be collected from the Academy’s reception or downloaded from the Academy’s website.

Please return the completed appeal form to the Academy within 20 school days* of your child having been refused a place (this is called “the deadline”). Appeals which we receive by the deadline will be heard within 30 school days of us receiving the appeal form.

If you do not return the completed appeal form to us by the deadline, we will still hear your appeal, but the appeal will be held at a later agreed date.

For both types of appeal the following rules apply:

You will receive at least 10 school days’ notice of the appeal hearing.

The best time to send evidence is with your appeal form. If you are unable to do this, please send all evidence at least 7 school days before the hearing. If evidence is received after this time the Independent Appeals Panel will decide whether this evidence can be heard or not.

You will be sent the Academy’s evidence and appeal papers at least 7 days before the hearing.

*School days are those days on which students are taught at the Academy. They do not include, for example, school holidays or weekends.
