Appeals

Year 7 – September 2019

Year 7 places will be offered, via the local authorities, on 1st March 2019.  Children who cannot be offered a place, due to there being more applications than there are places, will automatically remain on a waiting list.  If you need clarification about why your child was not offered a place, please speak to the Admissions Office at the Academy.

Before making an appeal, please read the documents at the bottom of this page which include information about the appeals procedures and, frequently asked questions and statistics (Appeals FAQ & Statistics Year 7 2019).

In-Year

The Academy is currently full in each year group.  Parents can apply for their child to join the waiting list; details of how to do this can be found by clicking on the ‘Admissions’ tab at the top of the website.

Before you can make an appeal you must first have applied to the Academy for a place and have completed a recent In-Year Application Form for the local authority.  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.

Before making an appeal, please read the documents at the bottom of this page which include information about the appeals process and, frequently asked questions and statistics (Appeals FAQ Secondary In-Year).
