"Sensing mindfully creates a space where we can experience what is happening, rather than what we think should happen or what has already happened. It’s a chance to rest the analytical mind that habitually searches for solutions, even when there's none."https://t.co/bnosQNpBvL

  • You must submit an application form to your Local Education Authority if applying online by 31st October 2021
  • Think carefully about the order in which you place your chosen schools on the form.  You should enter your most preferred school first on the list
  • Be sure to include at least 3 different schools on your preference form

On 1st March 2022, the local authority will notify you of the school where your child has been offered a place.

If you are unhappy that you did not receive an offer of a school place at Chobham Academy, you have the right to lodge an independent appeal with us. You have until Tuesday 29th March to submit an appeal form. All appeals will be held between the end of April – June 2022.

Deadlines

Appeals Process

Parent(s) wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions, for any year group, should complete the online Appeal Form below 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 3pm on 29th March 2022.

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.

Appeals in 2022

In view of the Covid-19 situation, until we have clarification from the DFE, we do not yet know if appeals will be held virtually or face to face in 2022. Below are the relevant dates that will apply regardless of how the appeals are held. 

1st March 2022 - National Offer Day

29th March 2022 - Closing date for receipt of completed appeal applications

10th May 2022 - Stage 1 Appeal hearings

10th May 2022 - Stage 2 Appeal hearings


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.
