Appeals

Following updated advice regarding Covid-19, staff in the Admissions and Appeals Office will be working remotely as much as it is possible to do so. If you have any questions please contact us by e-mail to appeals@dixonsacademies.com instead of telephoning the office.

Year 7 – September 2020

Year 7 places will be offered, via the local authorities, on 2nd March 2020.  Children who cannot be offered a place, due to there being more applications than there are places, will automatically remain on a waiting list until 31st December 2020.  On the Admissions page you will find details of how many applications there were, and a breakdown of places by ability band and oversubscription criteria. If you need clarification about why your child was not offered a place, please speak to the Admissions Office at the Academy.

Timeline for appeals

  • Deadline for submitting an appeal form:  27th March 2020
  • Appeals received by deadline to be heard within 40 school days of deadline:  15th June 2020
  • Last possible appeal date in the Summer term:  17th July 2020

Appeal forms received after the deadline will be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 school days of receipt of the appeal form.

Before making an appeal, please read the documents within the appeals pack (available from the downloads section below) which includes information about the appeals procedures and, frequently asked questions and statistics. 

The appeal form will be available to download from 2nd March 2020 and can be found at the bottom of this page.  From the same date, paper forms can be collected from the Reception at the Academy or requested by telephone or e-mail via the contact details given below.  

In-Year

The Academy is currently full in each year group. Parents can apply for their child to join the waiting list; details of how to do this can be found by clicking on the ‘Admissions’ tab at the top of the website.

Before you can make an appeal you must first have applied to the academy in writing for a place and/or have completed an In-Year Application Form for the local authority.  Once you have received a letter advising you that a place cannot be offered, you can then proceed to make an appeal for the academy if you wish to.

The academy can only proceed to the appeals stage if the year group is full. Places are not ‘reserved’ for those whose appeals are upheld, so any upheld appeal will result in the year group being over the published admission number.

Before making an appeal, please read the documents at the bottom of this page which include information about the appeals process and, frequently asked questions and statistics (Appeals FAQ Secondary In-Year).

If you wish to receive an appeals pack, please telephone the number given below and ask to speak to the Appeals Coordinator. Alternatively, you can send an e-mail to the address below stating:

  • your child’s name and date of birth
