Information on Appeals for Entry into Year 7

in September 2019 

If your child has not been successful in gaining a place at The Crypt School for entry in Year 7 in September 2019, you do have a statutory right to appeal and will be before an independent admissions appeal panel.  However, it may assist you to know that in order to have a possibility of succeeding on appeal you will need to demonstrate that your child is of the required academic standard.  The admissions appeals code suggests school reports with the Year 5/6 SAT results or a letter of support from your child’s current or previous school as examples of how one would do this.  Please note that if they are not considered to be of the appropriate academic standard by the independent appeal panel then the appeal will fail.
