The external clerk responsible for arranging the appeal will provide the appellant with at least 10 school days' notice of the appeal date(s). This notification will include a deadline for any additional evidence to be submitted before the hearing.

The external clerk will send the decision letter within five school days of when the decision is made (the only proviso being that this is subject to the number of appeals that are heard).

Please note:
If you have not applied for a place, you must do this first. Please see our admissions page for information on how to apply for a place. You can only appeal for a place in any academic year for a child once.
