Appeals

Emergency regulations were made in April 2020 because of the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on school appeals. These regulations will be in place until 30 September 2022. Appeals cannot be held face to face until the government guidelines on social distancing say so or the Academy Trust considers it practicable to hold an appeal in person. Appeals will, therefore, be remote hearings or as written submissions. The information below takes into account these regulations.


In-Year

The Academy is currently full in each year group. Parents can apply for their child to join the waiting list; details of how to do this can be found by clicking on the 'Admissions' tab at the top of the website.

Before you can make an appeal you must first have applied to the Academy for a place and/or have completed an In-Year Application Form for the local authority. Once you have received a letter advising you that a place cannot be offered, you can then proceed to make an appeal for the Academy if you wish to.

The Academy can only proceed to the appeals stage if the year group is full. Places are not 'reserved' for those whose appeals are upheld, so any upheld appeal will result in the year group being over the published admission number.

Before making an appeal, please read the documents at the bottom of this page which include information about the appeals process and, frequently asked questions and statistics (Appeals FAQ Secondary In-Year).

If you wish to receive an appeals pack, please telephone the number given below and ask to speak to the Appeals Coordinator. Alternatively, you can send an e-mail to the address below stating:

  • your child’s name and date of birth

  • the name of the academy that you wish to make an appeal for
