If you made an application to St Hilda’s and your child has not been offered a place, you have the right to appeal against the decision.
Appeals are heard by a committee called an Appeal Panel, independent of the school. Your appeal case will go before an Independent Appeals Panel, and you will be invited to the hearing to present your case. This is an opportunity for the school to give a detailed explanation of why we cannot admit your child, and this is also your opportunity to present your reasons as to why you believe we should admit your child to St Hilda’s.
You should think carefully about whether or not you wish to appeal against the decision.
You will need to consider:
- The Admissions Policy for not admitting pupils which clearly states how applications will be dealt with in the event of the school being oversubscribed.
- Your reasons for wanting your child to attend St Hilda’s and the strength of your case (based on the oversubscription criteria).
How to make an appeal
If you decide to appeal against the school’s decision not to admit your child, you must complete the St Hilda’s School Admission Appeal Form which can be obtained by calling the school direct.
