Where an application for a place at the school is unsuccessful, parents have the right to appeal against the decision. (If you have been offered a place at another school then please first take the time to visit that school; you may find that it meets all your child’s needs and that you would be happy for your child to go to that school). Should you wish to challenge an unsuccessful application for a place at Brill School then you must, in the first instance, click here to complete the 'Appeals Form'. Send the completed 'Appeals Form' to the school office either by emailing email@example.com, or by handing in a copy into the school office for the attention of the Admissions Panel. (To request a printed copy please contact the school office.)
Following receipt of this form, the school Admissions Panel will officially meet to discuss the grounds of this appeal, taking all given information into account. You will be notified in writing as to the outcome of this internal review within 5 days.
If you are unhappy with the result of the initial outcome, and wish to pursue this appeal further, you must notify Jayne Gibson-Harris, Chair of Governors, of this in writing along with any extra evidence you would like to submit by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Your appeal will then be escalated to an external and independent admissions panel led by the Oxford Diocese.
It should be noted that, in the event of an unsuccessful appeal against non-admission, the school does not consider any further application in the same school year (1 September – 31 August), unless there has been a material change in circumstances, for example a change of address which results in a move from outside the catchment area to inside it.
You can expect to receive notification of your escalated appeal and information related to the hearing according to the following timetable.
