Following allocations, parents / carers may appeal if they are not allocated a place for their child at their preferred school. Requests for appeals must be made in writing and addressed to the Admissions Officer at the relevant school. Appeals must be received by the school no later than twenty working days (four weeks) after allocation day or, in the case of ‘In Year’ applications, twenty working days after the date of the refusal letter. The Catholic Schools Appeals Service arranges all appeals on behalf of the governing bodies of the four schools. Appeals will be heard by an independent panel and the final decision of the panel is binding on all parties.

If you wish to appeal, please complete the following form and return to Kati Oakley, Admissions Officer at The Becket School
