If your child is not allocated a place at our school, you have the right to appeal. It is advisable to consider alternative schools for your child, as only a very small minority of the appeals that are considered by Appeal Panels are successful. Officers at the Surrey Schools and Childcare Service (Tel No. 0300 200 1004) can assist you with queries on alternative schools in your area.
As an Academy, our Governing Body is responsible for handling our appeals, alongside Surrey County Council. Any parent wishing to appeal against non-admission under our Admissions Policy criteria should submit paperwork to Surrey County Council. Full details can be found on their website.
