Admissions and Appeals
Church schools in the Diocese of Guildford comply with the Department for Education Codes of Practice:
Governors of Voluntary Aided Schools set the Admissions Policy every year. If you require information about a specific school's admissions policy you should contact the school direct or check the school's website (click for maps and listing of Church Schools' phone numbers and websites).
Parents: How to appeal
Any parent who fails to secure a place for their child at one of their preferred schools, has a statutory right of appeal to an Independent Appeal Panel. If you wish to lodge such an appeal against the decision of the Governing Body of a VA or Foundation school within Guildford Diocese, please read the FAQs (pdf).
To request the appropriate forms, please contact the office of your preferred school, who will advise you.
