Admission Appeals

Where an application for a place is refused, this will be notified to you in writing and the letter will clearly set out the reasons for the refusal.

All parents have a statutory right of appeal against a refusal of a place, which will be heard before an Independent Admission Appeal Panel.  Full details of the statutory right of appeal, including the deadline by which the request for an appeal and grounds must be lodged, will be included in the refusal letter.  The way in which appeals are determined is set out in the School Admission Appeals Code 2012.

If you wish to appeal, you should write to the Clerk to the Governors, Greig City Academy, High Street, Hornsey, London N8 7NU, explaining the reasons for your appeal.

The deadline for Secondary Transfer appeals (for entry to Y7 in September 2024) is May 17, 2024.  

The timetable for In-Year Appeals is as follows*:

Last day for lodging your appeal form

20 school days after the decision letter informing you that your child has not been offered a place.

Invitation letter giving you details about your appeal hearing sent by the Clerk to the appeal panel

At least 10 school days before the hearing.  This may be sent via email

Any additional supporting evidence for your appeal

FIVE working days before your hearing. You are advised that additional paperwork received on the day of the appeal hearing will not be taken into account. 

Letter from the Clerk informing you of the decision of the independent appeal panel

Usually within 5 - 10 school days after the hearing.

*Circumstances may mean that these timings need to change. You will be kept informed of any required changes.
