If you wish to appeal, it will be to the ‘admitting authority’ responsible for the school.
The majority of schools in Leicestershire (apart from Voluntary Aided Schools) use the Leicestershire County Council’s appeals service to conduct their appeals. So, you must use the council’s procedure to make your appeal, unless told otherwise.
The appeals procedure
Before you can appeal, you must have applied and been refused a school place. You should:
Applications for a school place received after the relevant closing dates i.e. after 31 October for secondary transfers or after 15 January for first time admissions are classed as late.
If your application was late, you must appeal within 20 school days of being refused the place. Your appeal will be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals, where possible, or 30 school days from the date the appeal was lodged.
Mid-term or in-year transfers
If you have applied for a school place outside the normal round i.e mid-term, and been refused, then you must lodge an appeal within 20 school days of being notified that your application was unsuccessful.
Your appeal will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
