If you have not been offered a place at your preferred school/s you will be added to the waiting list and asked to confirm whether you wish to remain on the waiting list. If you do not respond to this request by the date stated in your offer information, your child's name will be removed from the list.

If you have been refused a place at your preferred school(s), you have the right to appeal to an independent panel. You can only appeal if you have applied for the school and received notification that you have not been offered a place. You need to lodge your appeal by the deadline in your offer information.

For further information on the appeals process you can contact the Admissions team on 023 9268 8008 or email us at admissions@portsmouthcc.gov.uk.
