Guide: School admission appeals

How to appeal

We strongly advise that you read through all the information provided before you submit an appeal. This is to ensure you are fully informed of the appeals process and what circumstances the panel can and cannot consider.

If you feel you have a case to put forward and are ready to appeal, please access the school appeals portal, where you will need to create an account in order to submit an appeal. You can also log in to an existing account to check the status of your appeal(s).

If you require a paper copy to be sent to you via post, please email or phone 01392 381362 to request this, however, we would advise where possible to submit your appeal via the portal above.

Additional evidence

If you have additional evidence to support your appeal such as medical records, legal documentation or any other proof of circumstances which you are unable to include at this time with your appeal form, please upload this to the portal. If you are unable to do this you can send this directly to the Independent School Appeals Clerk either by email or post (details below).

If emailing or posting evidence, please ensure you include yours and the child’s full name, date of birth and the school you are appealing for along with any evidence submitted to prevent delay to your appeal.
