Welcome to Appeals

You have the right to appeal to an Independent Appeal Panel if your child has not been offered a place at your preferred school. You only have the right to appeal once you have applied for a school place and have been advised in writing that it is not possible to offer a place.
Before you can submit an appeal, you will need to register your details on this website as follows below. If you have already registered, please click the Login button.

Please note that if you live in Hertfordshire and made your application online, you do not need to register. You can log straight in using your admission account details.

In order to register, you will need the following information that can be found on the letter or email that you received from the Admissions and Transport Team:

  • Your unique reference number (six digits)
  • Your child ID (twenty characters, including numbers, letters and dashes)



Please do not use the browser forward or back buttons whilst entering your appeal.
Please note that there are schools that administer their own appeals process and you cannot appeal for those schools using this website. You will need to contact these schools directly.
