September 2017 entry
Appeals for children refused a place at a preferred school for admission to Year 7 in September 2017 will be heard in line with the School Admissions Appeals Code (2012).
School offers are made on the 1st March 2017.
If you did not receive an offer from Hammersmith Academy, and would like to appeal the decision, the deadline for lodging an appeal is before 4pm on the 21st April.
We expect the Independent Appeal Panel will hear appeals starting week beginning Monday, 15th May 2017 and you will be given details of the appeals arrangements before that date. If you have not received confirmation of receipt of your appeal letter by Friday, 28th April 2017 please contact the Academy.
‘On-time’ appeals will be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals. Appeals lodged after these dates will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 school days of being lodged, whichever is the later date.
Mid-year appeals must be heard within 30 school days of receipt of the appeal.
Parents/carers will be notified of their appeal date on or after 2nd May 2017 – appeals are expected to be heard in the week beginning Monday 15th May.
Any additional evidence parents/carers wish to submit in support of their appeal must be sent to the external agency at least 5 working days before the hearing. Any evidence not submitted by this deadline may not be considered by the independent appeal panel.
If you wish to appeal for a place in Year 7, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or the academy to request an appeals form.
