If you have not been allocated your preferred school and you wish to appeal, please complete the online appeal form. Please complete by the end of March. The appeals will be heard mid-May and a letter will go out nearer the time inviting you in with a time and date. The appeals will be heard at Birkenhead High School Academy in front of an independent panel along with a school representative. There will be a group hearing on the first morning and then independent parent appeals throughout the day which will last approximately 20 minutes. Notification as to whether you have been successful or not will be sent out by the Clerk to the Panel within 10 working days.
