Appeals

Parents/Guardians/Carers all applicants who fail to gain a place at the school because of the application of the admissions criteria through over-subscription shall have full rights of appeal to the Independent Appeals Panel established in accordance with the regulations. (Education Act 1980).

Appeals will be undertaken strictly in accordance with the current DfE Statutory Guidance, Admissions Appeals Code 2012. Appeals documentation must be lodged by  30th March  2019 at Harlington School if you wish to have your appeal heard by the end of the summer term.  Every parent has the right of appeal regardless of when they lodge their appeal. The only reason we have a date by which appeals must be lodged is to ensure that the appeal is heard before the end of the summer term. You must write to us stating that you wish to lodge an appeal, enclosing a stamped, self – addressed envelope. Appeals can be lodged after this date, but the appeals panel may not be able to meet to make a decision before the beginning of the new academic year.

Please note Harlington School follows Hillingdon council’s data protection approach, of not giving out waiting list information, over the phone. Questions about waiting lists will be replied to using the email address registered on the application form.
