Appeals

If you have not been offered a place at Finchley Catholic High School, the law entitles you to appeal against that decision to an Independent Appeal Panel.  This panel is completely independent of the school and the Local Authority.  The appeals are held at the school.

If you wish to appeal, please download an Appeal Form below. You should include any evidence or supporting material with your appeal form and you MUST give the grounds for your appeal at the time you lodge your appeal form.  Your appeal form will not be accepted unless you state the grounds for your appeal.  You may appeal for more than one school.

Before you complete please read the guide to appeals below.

In year appeals

These appeals are heard within 30 school days of the appeal form being lodged with the Clerk.  Unless you waive this right, you will be given 10 school days’ notice of the hearing.  Additional evidence must be sent to the Clerk to the panel not later than 5 working days before the hearing. Decision letters are dispatched 5 working days after the hearing.
