School admission appeals

Unfortunately, it is not always possible to offer your child a place in your preferred school. If your child is refused a place in your preferred school(s) you have the right to appeal against the decision to an independent appeal panel.

Community and controlled school appeals

You can find details of how to make an appeal in the case of community and controlled schools in the school admissions appeals guide for parents.
