For Parents/Carers who Wish to Appeal

Parent(s) wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions, for any year group, should complete an Appeal Form (see below) stating the reason for the appeal, based on the published Admissions Criteria.

If you wish to appeal you must contact the Admissions Team at Thurrock Council who will send you an appeals form to complete.

Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at

Thurrock Council Admissions, Civic Offices, New Road, Grays, Thurrock, RM17 6SL. Tel: 01375652883 or via the admissions website at  www.thurrock.gov.uk/admissions

  • Only one appeal per application is allowed.
  • Appeals are conducted in person, and you may bring a friend.

The Appeal Hearing

Thurrock Council will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy.  

The Panel will consist of 3 people (2 will have education experience and one will be an independent person with no education experience).

The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal i.e. the prejudice that one more student would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the students already attending the Academy, also taking into account the Academy's published admission arrangements.  

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the Parents.

  • 9 June 2018 - deadline to appeal
  • 27 June 2018 - notice of hearing
  • 4 July 2018 - circulation of papers
  • 11 and 12 July 2018 - appeal hearing
