Appeal Hearing Date for Year 7 Intake September 2019

The Appeals Hearing for all appeals received prior to 9:00am on 4 April 2019 will be held during week commencing 20 May 2019 at The Diocese of Peterborough Offices. 

An appeal which is lodged after the deadline for lodging appeals will be heard without delay and if at all possible before the commencement of the Year 7 September term, although that will be subject to the date when the appeal is made.

The Clerk responsible for arranging the appeal will provide the appellant with at least 10 school days' notice of the appeal date(s). This notification will include a deadline for any additional evidence to be submitted before the hearing.

The Clerk will send the decision letter within five school days of when the decision is made (the only proviso being that this is subject to the number of appeals that are heard).

Please note:

If you have not applied for a place, you must do this first. Please see our admissions page for information on how to apply for a place. You can only appeal for a place in any academic year for a child once.
