Admissions - Admission Appeals 2022

Article Index

We appreciate that with the large number of applications to the school there will be many children who are disappointed not to be allocated a place. We had 1465 applications for the 171 places and have applied the Admission Policy which states clearly how applications are dealt with. Please see the Admission Information Booklet here for a reminder of how places are allocated.

Parents have the right to appeal against an admission authority's decision refusing their child admission to a school under section 94(I)(b) and (2) of the 1998 Act.  If you wish to submit an appeal you should contact Sally Loveridge (This email address is being protected from spambots.

You should submit this form by the stated deadline clearly setting out the reasons for your appeal.  You may include any letters, correspondence, written reports or documents that support your case.

Prior to your appeal hearing you will receive a written statement from Liverpool College advising you how the admissions policy was applied in your case, and a general statement explaining the implications for the school of admitting pupils over roll.  If you have any questions about the admission policy or how places are allocated please contact Sally Loveridge and she will be happy to advise you.  The Government also offer advice on their website :
