Admission appeal process

If you have been refused a place at your preferred school we will explain why, and you will be given a guide on the appeal process.

The guide explains:

  • how the appeal will be conducted
  • the sort of information you may wish to present
  • who the members of an independent panel might be
  • how a decision is reached
  • the outcome of your appeal

These schools have their own appeal procedures and should be contacted directly for details:

If the school you are appealing to is outside North Somerset, send your appeal letter to the council where the school is located.

Appeal hearings

Appeal hearings for reception intake, junior and secondary transfer are heard between May and July. Appeal hearings for people wanting to change their child’s school are heard about 28 days after an appeal is made.
