Where the Governors are unable to offer a place because the Academy is oversubscribed, parents have the right to appeal to an independent Admissions Appeal Panel, set up under the School Standards and Framework Act, 1998, as amended by the Education Act, 2002.  Parents should notify the Academy within 14 days of receiving the letter refusing a place.

Parents will have the opportunity to submit their case to the Independent Admissions Appeal Panel in writing and also to attend in order to present their case.  You will normally receive 14 days’ notice of the place and time of the hearing.
