School admissions appeals
If your child has been refused a place at a Wandsworth maintained school, you have a legal right to appeal against this decision to an Independent Appeal Panel.
The Wandsworth Appeals Service is responsible for arranging appeal panels for all of the Borough's community primary and secondary schools.
We also manage appeals for some of the Borough's voluntary-aided and foundation schools.

All other maintained schools not listed above are responsible for their own appeals and you should contact the schools directly for further information about the appeals process.
Where we are responsible for the appeals arrangements for a school, you can download the form, alternatively, you can contact the Appeals Service and we will post or email a form to you. When you have completed the form you should return it to us. Arrangements will then be made for your appeal to be heard by an appeal panel that is independent of the Council and the school involved.
Full details of the appeals process are explained in the guidance notes for parents and carers. If you have any queries about the process please contact us.
