In-Year appeals are for children transferring between schools mid-year. You can make a formal appeal to an independent appeal panel, for any school that you have applied for where admission has been refused. This is a legal process and places are not ‘reserved’ for appeal panels to offer.
In-year appeals are usually heard within 30 school days of receipt of the appeal form.
Before you can make an appeal you must first have applied to the academy for a place. 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 admission number.
If you wish to receive an appeals pack, please contact the academy via our contact form or telephone: 0151 228 6800
