Late Applications & Appeals
Applications for a school place received after the relevant closing dates i.e. after 31 October for secondary transfers or after 15 January for first time admissions are classed as late.
If your application was late, you must appeal within 20 school days of being refused the place. Your appeal will be heard up to 40 school days from the date it was lodged
Mid-term or in-year transfers
If you have applied for a school place outside the normal round i.e mid-term, and been refused, then you must lodge an appeal within 20 school days of being notified that your application was unsuccessful.
Your appeal will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
Leicestershire County Council – School Admissions
Leicestershire County Council – Apply for a Secondary School Place
If you wish to appeal, it will be to the ‘admitting authority’ responsible for the school.
The majority of schools in Leicestershire (apart from Voluntary Aided Schools) use the Leicestershire County Council’s appeals service to conduct their appeals. So, you must use the council’s procedure to make your appeal, unless told otherwise.
Oversubscription List (OSL)
The position your child will appear on the Oversubscription List will depend on how closely they meet the school’s admissions priority criteria – see Your Guide to Education for more details.
If a place becomes available, and your child is at the top of the list, you will be contacted automatically to offer you the place. The majority of OSLs are maintained by Leicestershire County Council’s School Admissions Service. Voluntary Aided schools and some Academies maintain their own.
