Admissions appeals

Parents / carers have the right of appeal to an Independent Appeal Panel if they are dissatisfied with an admission decision of the Academy (although this right does not apply to decisions relating to applications to any of our nurseries).

The Appeal Panel will be independent of the Academy and will be overseen by the London Borough of Enfield in line with the School Admission Appeals Code published by the Department of Education.

The Department for Education has also published Advice for parents and guardians on school admission appeals.


How to appeal

If you wish to appeal an admission decision, please complete the appeal against admission decision form.

If the appeal relates to the main September intake, the form should be returned to the school by the applicable closing date below.

It should be noted that appeals will be considered against the schools admissions criteria as opposed to any personal circumstances which parents / carers may feel are appropriate.

Appeals can be heard in person, or by a representative or remotely.
