If you have not been offered a place at The Skinners’ School, the law entitles you to appeal against that decision to an Independent Appeal Panel. This panel is completely independent of the school and the Local Authority. The appeals are held at the school.
If you wish to appeal, please download an Appeal Form from the school’s website. Please do NOT use ANY other appeal form or send your form to your local authority. Once completed, the form must be sent directly to the Independent Appeal Panel (please do not send it to the school). It is suggested that you download the explanatory leaflet about appeals which you should read before you complete the appeal form. The appeal form is in Word format. The panel would prefer the form to be typed, but handwritten forms are acceptable. In black ink. Please ensure that the clerk can read your details including telephone numbers and e mail addresses. ‘Signatures’ may be typed.
You should include any evidence or supporting material with your appeal form and you MUST give the grounds for your appeal at the time you lodge your appeal form. Your appeal form will not be accepted unless you state the grounds for your appeal. You may appeal for more than one school.
The timetable for Appeals 2019 (11+ and In-Year Admissions) can be found here.
