Parents have the right to appeal if a place is not offered at a school that was a higher preference than the one offered. Appeals should be made to the admission authority for the school. There is a list of admission authorities in related downloads. Appeals for community and voluntary controlled schools should be submitted by 15 May, and the appeals will be heard in June or early July.
