We deal with appeals for community schools in the borough. You should contact the school directly if you have been refused a place by:
a faith school
a school outside the borough.
If your child does not qualify for a place at one of the schools you applied for, we will offer you a different school. This may be a faith school, a non-faith school or a school outside your neighbourhood.
There is no limit on how far away the school can be, but we aim to offer a place within two miles of your family home.
For independent advice, contact ACE Education Adv. You can call their telephone advice line on 0300 0115 142, Monday–Wednesday, 10am–1pm
