All admission appeals for this school are handled by the Surrey Schools Appeals Service based at County Hall, Kingston-upon-Thames.  All arrangements are made through the Appeals Service and appeals are normally held at County Hall.  It is anticipated that all appeals for September 2017 entry will take place in late June 2017.

After 31 March 2017, parents who have informed the school of their intent to appeal will be able to download the necessary forms and guidance notes from the Surrey County Council website:  http://www.surreycc.gov.uk/schoolappeals .  Please note: completed forms should be returned to Surrey County Council by 18th May 2017 in order to allow sufficient time to prepare for the appeals to be heard in June.  If you would prefer to receive a hard copy of the forms and guidance notes, please contact the Clerk to Governors.

Telephone: 020 8398 7161 ext 109
