Admissions and Appeals

Applications for Year 7 must be made using the appropriate Common Application Form.

Applications for entry to Bullers Wood Sixth Form will be via an online form which will be available in December.

Please see the downloads section at the bottom of this page to download our Admissions Policy. Please refer to Bromley Secondary School Admissions for information on Year 7.

Any child not offered a place will have the statutory right of appeal providing you put Bullers Wood School on your Common Application Form.  Those wishing to appeal should register their intention of doing so by sending a letter, addressed to Mrs McCarthy – Appeal Panel, c/o Bullers Wood School, within 20 days of being informed that their child has not been allocated a place.  All appeal letters will be acknowledged in writing and you will be asked to complete an Admissions Appeal Form which must be returned by 27th April 2018.

Appeals will be heard on 18th or 19th June 2018

The conduct of an Appeals Panel is governed by the DfE School Admission Appeals Code of Practice.  This is a summary of current procedures:

  • An appeal must be submitted in writing setting out the grounds on which it is made.
  • Parents must be given the opportunity to attend and speak at the meeting.
  • The appeal will be heard in private and be conducted in an informal atmosphere.
  • The Appeal Panel will weigh-up the case submitted by the parent/care against the case made by the school (which is normally that the school is full and to admit more pupils would cause prejudice).
  • The Appeal Panel’s decision is binding on the Authority and the School.

If you consider that the Panel acted improperly or unreasonably in handling your case you can make a complaint to:

Academy Admission Appeal Complaints
Academies Central Unit, Education Funding Agency
8th Floor, Earlsdon Park
Butts Road
