Graveney School

Appeals Timetable FOR SEPTEMBER 2021 ENTRY

Your offer of a school place will be sent to you by your home Local Authority on 1 March 2021.
If you have applied to Graveney School, but have not received an offer of a place here, you have the right to appeal against this decision to an independent appeals panel.

Graveney is an Academy, therefore the Academy Trust is responsible for independent appeals. We have made arrangements with Wandsworth Borough Council to handle appeals on our behalf. You will have received information on how to make an appeal with your offer letter.

The deadline for submitting your appeal to Wandsworth is MONDAY 29 March 2021. You do not need to submit all your supporting evidence at this time, but you must do so by 8am, 3 working days before your appeal hearing at the latest.
