Following the offer of places, a waiting list will be kept in strict oversubscription criteria order until at least the end of the first academic term. Each added child will require the list to be ranked again in line with the oversubscription criteria.
Appeals are administered by the Local Authority for this School. Parents who wish to appeal against the decision to refuse their child admission should go to www.birmingham.gov.uk/schooladmissions to find the appeal form. Appeals will be heard by an independent panel.
