If you are not offered a place at this school you have the right of appeal against the decision not to allocate a place to your child.  Appeals are heard by an independent panel.  You can get an appeal form from School Admissions on 0121 704 6693 or [email protected]

Your appeal will be heard within the following timetable:

  Closing date for receipt of your written appeal: Your appeal will be heard by:
Secondary places for children starting in September 2020 30 March 2020 16 June 2020
Change of school (application at any time other than normal intake) 20 school days after your outcome letter 30 school days after your appeal form has been received.
Appeals received after the closing date will be heard within the schedule, if possible. However, if the form is received in late June the appeal may not be heard until after the school summer holidays.  Appeals are not heard during the school holidays.
