School admission appeal guidance 2022

If your child has been refused admission to a Lambeth community or voluntary-controlled school, you have a legal right to appeal against this decision to an Independent Appeals Panel.

Appeals for pupils in academic years 3 – 11

Please note that we can only accept appeals for Lambeth primary and secondary community schools, voluntary-controlled schools, Oasis Academy Johanna and Oasis Academy South Bank.

If you wish to appeal for admission to any other primary or secondary school such as an academy, foundation or voluntary-aided school, you will need to contact the school(s) directly to obtain information about how to appeal.

A full list of the schools that we accept appeals for is included in the admission appeal guidance note. Please read this below before completing the form.
