Information and how to appeal a declined admissions application can be found here :
Appeals resulting from in year admission applications will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged. Appellants will be given at least 10 clear school days' notice of the appeal hearing date. Appellants will be sent a copy of the Trust's case 7 clear working days in advance of the hearing. If an appellant wishes to submit further evidence which was not included with their initial appeal, it must be received no later than 5pm on the day preceding 3 clear working days before the appeal hearing date. The Appeal Panel must decide whether any additional evidence or information received after this date may be considered, taking into account its significance and the effect of a possible need to adjourn the hearing.
