Appeals for In-Year Applications

These appeals concern applications made after the first day of the Academic year. These appeals concern applications for a school place in all year groups. Appeals for in-year applications will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.

Further Appeals

Appellants do not have the right to a second appeal in respect of the Academy for the same academic year unless, in exceptional circumstances, the Academy has accepted a second application from the appellant. This will be because of a significant and material change in the circumstances of the parent, child or Academy. However, this appeal will be dealt with separately from any other appeal and the circumstances of the appeal dealt with by the appeals panel accordingly. However, the applicant may still be refused admission. Appellants may apply for a place in the Academy in respect of a later academic year and have a further right of appeal if that application is unsuccessful.

Further Information

If you have any questions regarding Appeals please contact the Academy.
