Appealing for a place for in the current Years 7 to 11

Parents will first be required to apply for a place for their child.  In the event that the application is declined, the school will write to the parents informing them of our decision, after which parents have the right to appeal.  In this event, they should write to the Clerk to the Chair of Governors informing us of their intention to appeal, and stating within, the grounds on which their appeal is based.  This will prompt us to arrange an appeal hearing.  Parents upon submitting their appeal will have time to construct their case and to gather evidence.  The appeals panel is a body independent of the school who will consider the evidence presented by the parents before making a decision on whether to direct the school to admit the student.
