When does an appeal for Year 7 Intake Sept have to be submitted by?

The decision letter you received from the local authority will give a deadline for lodging the appeal, which is 20 school days. If you have passed this deadline, your appeal will still be heard, however this may cause delays and may not be heard at the same time as the appeals submitted on time.

Appeal Hearings:

The school must ensure that appeals lodged by the appropriate deadlines are heard within the following timescales:

  • for applications made in the normal admissions 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 appeal being lodged.

For applications for in-year admissions, appeals must be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.

Any appeals submitted after the appropriate deadline must still be heard, in accordance with whatever timescale is set out in the timetable published by the admission authority.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

If you have any queries regarding the process of appealing, you may find the “AMA In-Year Appeal Guidance 2023” helpful which can be found in the Documents and Forms section.
