School admission appeals

About school admission appeals

Your right to appeal

All parents have the right to appeal if they are not offered a place at their preferred school(s).

Guidance notes

We recommend that you download our guidance for parents (PDF 417.5KB) , which explains how to appeal and how the appeal process works.

Who will deal with your appeal?

If your appeal is for a school in Central Bedfordshire, your appeal should be sent to our Education Appeals Clerk (find out how). This is regardless of the type of school is involved (there are several different types e.g. community, voluntary controlled, academy etc.)

If you are appealing for place at a school located outside of Central Bedfordshire, please contact the relevant council.
