If you are unsuccessful at gaining a place you will be advised of your right to appeal. The appeal should be made in writing directly to the Academy Councillors of the school. Please contact the school office for more information.
Admission appeals are handled through the Diocese of Leeds and are heard by an independent appeal panel set up under the Education Act 1998 to hear appeals by parents against the refusal by the school’s Governing Body to admit their child to the school of their preference. Panels consist of three members who are independent of the school and their decision is binding on the school. The school are asked to present to the panel the reasons why admission was refused and why the admission of an additional child would cause prejudice to the school, this is known as a prejudice appeal. The parent will have the opportunity to say why they want a place at the school.
