Appeals for Admission to Lord Grey Academy September 2021

If your child has not been allocated a place at Lord Grey Academy, you can request information about the independent appeal procedure by contacting the admissions officer by sending an email to:

You will need to provide us with your child’s name, date of birth and address. If you wish to proceed with appealing, please request for the relevant appeal information to be sent to your home address.

The appeal pack must be requested by parents within 28 calendar days from the refusal of the school place.

We recognise the importance of the right to appeal and would not wish to discourage parents from making an appeal if they feel they have a genuine case to put forward. However, we would like to highlight the following:

  • There is a considerable cost (£250 plus VAT) per appeal held. This cost is met by the Academy which is a public funded organisation.

  • Most appeals are unsuccessful (80%) because the school does not have the resources to admit additional children over the published admission number.

  • Appeals which are submitted late cannot be heard before the start of the Academic Year in September.

Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Appeals

The Appeals Team at Buckinghamshire County Council (which administers the school admission appeals) is monitoring government guidance and  considering the possible impact of the coronavirus on appeals, which normally take place in the spring and summer.

The Independent Appeal Panel members  are unpaid and trained volunteers and  the Appeals Team is advising parents that there may be unavoidable delays due to the virus outbreak.
