Detailed guidance on school admission appeals
3. Key dates for school appeals
These deadlines are particularly important for appeals relating to the September 2022 intake.
We aim to have all appeals, which are received within the deadline, heard by the following dates.
When will I get the details of my hearing?
We will give you the details in writing at least 10 school days before your appeal hearing.
We will also share:
- your appeal form and
- the admission authority’s written response (statement of case).
We will send these 7 working days before the hearing (not including the day of despatch or the hearing day).
When will I know the outcome of my appeal?
We aim to send out written confirmation of the decision within 5 working days of your hearing. At peak times this is not always possible. Sometimes a panel needs to hear many appeals for one school over several days. In these cases we can’t release the decisions until after the last day of hearings for that school.
Please do not call the school appeals team for the outcome of your appeal. We cannot provide this information via telephone calls.
