Make a schools admissions appeal

If your child has been refused a place at a Wandsworth maintained school, you have a legal right to appeal against this decision to an Independent Appeal Panel. 

The Wandsworth Appeals Service is responsible for arranging appeal panels for all of Wandsworth's community primary and secondary schools and some of the Borough's academies, voluntary-aided and foundation schools.

Before you start, check the appeals timetable to find out key dates in the appeals process.

Before completing the appeal form please read the guidance notes and have ready copies of any documents you wish to attach to your form.

What happens next

When you have completed and submitted the form, arrangements will then be made for your appeal to be heard by an appeal panel that is independent of the Council and the school involved.

All other maintained schools not listed below are responsible for their own appeals. You should contact these schools directly for further information about their appeals process.
