Appeals Process

If your child is due to start secondary school in September 2017 you can appeal between 1 March and 29 March 2017 to guarantee that your appeal will be heard by 15 June 2017. For applications made in the normal admission round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals. For late applications appeals should be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 school days of the appeals being lodged.
