ADMISSION APPEALS – SEPTEMBER 2022 ENTRY (YEAR 7)

In the event that we are unable to offer your child a place, there is an appeals procedure that gives a parent the right of appeal to an independent committee.  If you would like to lodge an appeal please contact Mrs S Secker, Clerk to Local Governors at the school by 31 March 2022 in the first instance. 

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, in normal circumstances,  appeals take place at County Hall.  However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, school appeals may be run as audio appeals using a conference call system.  The exception to this is for multiple appeals for the same school and same year group where Stage 1 will be heard on paper and Stage 2 via audio.  It is anticipated that all appeals for September 2022 entry will take place in late June/early July 2022.

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 26 April 2022 in order to allow sufficient time to prepare for the appeals to be heard in June/July.  If you would prefer to receive a hard copy of the forms and guidance notes, please contact the Clerk to Local Governors.

Contact Details for appeals information:

Mrs S Secker, Clerk to Local Governors

Telephone: 020 8398 7161 ext 109

Email: ssecker@hinchleywoodschool.co.uk

Please note that the deadline for submission of any additional, late evidence from appellants, that is not sent with the initial appeal, is no later than 5.00pm on the day preceding three clear working days prior to the appeal hearing date.  Any evidence received after this date might not be considered at the appeal.
