Appealing against an Admission Decision

For many years Ashton on Mersey School has been oversubscribed meaning that places for in-year transfers are very limited indeed. Where a place is available, a written offer will be made to include arrangements for admission to the school. Allocated places must be taken up by the date specified in the offer letter.

All unsuccessful applicants will have the right to appeal to an Independent Appeals Panel in accordance with the Education Act 1993.

Parents who have been unsuccessful in their application for a place at Ashton on Mersey School for Year 7 entry must indicate their wish to appeal against this decision on the form that they return to their local authority when the initial allocation letter is received in March.

Parents applying for an in-year transfer who wish to exercise their right to appeal must express their intention at the time of completing the In-Year Transfer Application Form, in the event of them being unsuccessful.
