The Clerk to the Admission Appeals Panel will write to you giving you the date and time that your appeal hearing will be held. You will receive at least 10 school days’ notice of the allocated appeal hearing date.
Appeal hearing dates
Appeals are likely to be heard during May but will be no later than mid-June.
Letters will be sent within five school days of the hearing wherever possible. The decision of the independent Admission Appeals Panel is binding on you and the School.
