If you are unhappy with the school offered to your child, you can have your case heard by an independent appeals panel who will consider your individual circumstances.
Parents and carers can only appeal for schools that they have submitted as a preference.
How to appeal
You can appeal to Admissions and Appeals about places at community schools and Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls.
For appeals about places at the King Edward VI Grammar Schools:
The Schools of King Edward VI in Birmingham
Edgbaston Park Road
If you’re appealing about places at voluntary-aided and foundation schools, please write to the Chair of Governors at the school. You should contact the schools directly for information on their appeal arrangements.
Appeals for schools outside Birmingham should be made in accordance with the published admission arrangements of the local authority concerned.
Deadline for making appeals
The deadline for receipt of appeals for community schools in Birmingham can be found by following the link below:
Please make sure that your appeals are submitted by this date. Appeals received afterwards may not be accepted without a reasonable explanation as to why they are late. You can make appeals about any schools that you have submitted as a preference.
If you’ve appealed unsuccessfully for a particular school, you can’t apply for a place at the same school in the same academic year, unless you can show there has been a significant and material change in your circumstances since the appeal.
