Appeals

Overview

At the time of the Secondary School offer of places in March 2015 and the offer of Reception Class places in April 2015, most Birmingham parents / carers who applied on time were offered one of their preferred schools:

  • 4% of Birmingham applicants for transfer to Year 7 were offered one of their preferences
  • 8% of Birmingham applicants for Reception Class were offered one of their preferences

However, there are a small number of cases each year where the school cannot offer a place. If this happens to you, the School Admissions and Pupil Placements Service can give you information on other schools that may have places available.

If you feel you would like to pursue the matter further, you can have your case heard by an Appeal Panel that is independent of the Local Authority or, in the case of foundation or voluntary aided schools and academies, by an Appeal Panel that is independent of the school’s admission authority.
