Appeals 2018-19

The School Admission Appeals Code 2012 at section 2.1 includes a deadline for lodging appeals which allows appellants at least 20 school days from the date of notification that their application was unsuccessful to prepare and lodge their written appeal.


It also states that appeals for applications made in the normal admissions round appeal must be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals.


With these dates in mind and for your information, Derby City Council has set the following dates for their appeal closing dates and hearings:

  • Monday 16 April 2018 – National Offer Day
  • Tuesday 15 May 2018 – Closing date for all Reception and Junior Transfer intake appeals
  • Tuesday 17 July 2018 – All on-time appeals for Reception and Junior Transfer intake must have been heard
