Appeal timetable Click to get info
For applications made in the normal admissions round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals.
For in year admissions, appeals must be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
We only consider one appeal for each school in the same school year. In exceptional circumstances, you may be able to appeal for the same school more than once. There would need to have been a significant change in your circumstances since your first appeal.
