Timetable for Appeals 2024-2025 transfer to Secondary school

Appeals paperwork must be received by 3pm on Friday 12th April 2024. Any appeals lodged after 12th April 2024 must be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.

The right of appeal is to a panel made up of members of the public who are independent of the chosen school and independent of the local authority.  Before launching an appeal for your child to have a place at Barnwood Park, we would urge you to consider whether you have grounds for appeal that go beyond suggesting that your child (like many others) would benefit from a Barnwood Park education.  Please also be aware that the distance between the school and your home address has already been considered as part of the original allocation process so this alone, is unlikely to form sufficient grounds for a successful appeal.

Appeal forms should be forwarded to


Notice of the appeal hearing

The Clerk to the Independent Appeals Panel will write to parents/carers with the date, time and location of where the appeal will be held. You will receive at least 10 school days’ notice.

Notice of appeal outcomes will be sent within 5 school days of the hearing wherever possible.
