School admission appeals

If you have not been offered a place at your preferred school(s) you have the right of appeal against the decision not to allocate your child a place. Accepting the place you have been offered does not affect your right of appeal. Appeals are heard by an independent panel. Some appeals are arranged by Solihull Council and others are arranged by the school. Check the list below and contact for a form.

Appeal for a place in year 7 starting in September 2018

  • Closing date for forms: 29 March 2018
  • Appeals will be heard by: 18 June 2018

Appeal for a place to start in year reception or year 3 in a junior school in September 2018

  • Closing date for forms: 15 May 2018
  • Appeals will be heard by: 17 July 2018

Appeal for a place starting at any other time

  • Closing date for forms: 20 days after receipt of your outcome (refusal) letter
  • Appeal will be heard by: 30 days after the appeals clerk has received your form

Appeals received after the closing date will be heard within the schedule where possible but this cannot be guaranteed. If the form is received in late June the appeal may not be heard until after the school summer holidays. Appeals are not heard during the school holidays.

You will receive 10 school days’ notice of the time and date of the appeal hearing. This can be waived if all parties agree. A week before your appeal hearing, you will be sent a statement explaining why your child has not been offered a place and why the school is unable to admit another pupil.

Any additional documentation you wish to submit in support of your appeal must be sent to the appeal clerk within 3 days of the appeal hearing. Failure to comply may result in your appeal hearing being adjourned.

You can find further information about the appeals process managed by Solihull Council in our Parents’ Guide to Appeals.
