“Your feelings are valid” “You’re not alone” “You can get through this” “You matter” “I care for you” Saying these words to someone struggling can really help. Most of the time you don't need to have all the answers. Simply being there can be enough.

Appeals Process

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

Completed appeal forms for Year 7 appeal forms must be received by The Academy by 30th March.

The appeals will be heard, in private, by an Independent appeal Panel. The Clerk to the Appeal Panel will make an appointment within a reasonable time, Appeals may be made in English or the Parents’/Carers’ first language.

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

The Appeal Hearing

The Independent Appeals Panel will then 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.

Sixth Form Applications

All Sixth Form admissions information can be found by following the link to the Sixth Form page. For Sixth Form related enquiries please contact Ms Rees, Head of Sixth Form, on s.rees@chobhamacademy.org.uk.
