Any child not offered a place will have the statutory right of appeal providing Bullers Wood School for Girls was named on the Common Application Form.
If your child is due to start secondary school in September 2024 you can lodge a request for an appeal in March 2024 to guarantee that your appeal will be heard before the end of the summer term. For applications made in the normal admission round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals. For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 schools days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 schools days of the appeals being lodged.
Please find below our School Appeals – Frequently Asked Questions & Guidance Notes

All Appeal Forms will be acknowledged by email; please contact Mrs Berry if you do not receive an acknowledgement within three working days.
TIMETABLE for Year 7 Appeals September 2024:
National Offer Day – Friday 1st March 2024
Deadline for receipt of appeal form and additional supporting evidence – Tuesday 16th April 2024
Appeal Hearings – Friday 7th June 2024
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 hearing (All Appeals will be held virtually via Zoom or Telephone Call).
- The Appeal Panel will weigh-up the case submitted by the parent/carer 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.
