WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE APPEALS' PROCESS?

Why An Appeal Letter is So Important

Some local authorities have a form you need to fill in to start the appeals’ process; others will require you to post a letter. However you need to respond, our appeal letter template will help you structure and formulate the basis of your appeal. The details of how to appeal will be explained in the refusal letter or the email you have received.

There is a strict time limit to respond to the admission decision and so it’s important to start the process as soon as possible.

Please remember that you should submit your appeal before the deadline. Further information and supporting evidence can be submitted later e.g. letters from medical professionals or examples of work.

Who Should Buy the Template Letter?

Our template letter is for Normal Round admissions at Secondary Schools. This means it’s only for decisions which were announced on the national offer day in March, rather than moving withing a school year.

If your child is at a Grammar School, whilst our template letter isn’t specifically designed for them, it still provides a useful resource from which you can build your appeal.

Why shouldn’t I use a ‘free’ template I have found online?

You could, but how in depth is it? Is it out of date? Does it give you detailed guidance on what to consider and examples of some of the main reasons you may like to include? Does it talk about what evidence you may like to provide? Is the guidance and letter over 6 pages in length, or is it simply a one page outline?

This is about an investment in your child’s education.
