Admission Appeal Timelines

Appeals for entry to Y7 in September 2020 will be administrated by the Local Authority on behalf of the Academy and in line with the statutory Appeal Code of Practice. Appeals will be heard at the Sheffield Town Hall. Any parent who is refused a place at King Ecgbert School will be entitled to appeal to an independent panel.

Parents will be advised of the exact closing date and appeal procedure  if they are refused admission at any of their preferred schools. Appeal Application Forms can be obtained from the Local Authority or dowloaded here where you can also find guidance about the process.

Appeals are scheduled by the Local Authority on behalf of the Academy and those that are submitted on time are normally heard before the end of June . Schedules will be determined after the closing date for receiving appeals. Appeals that are submitted late will be scheduled after this date. 

You will be notified of the date and time of your appeal in writing by the City Council. 

Please note that the appeal panel is independent of the Academy and the Local Authority and its decision is legally binding on both the Academy and on parents For any further advice on the appeals process please contact the Admissions Team on 0114 2735766 or email
