    Parents Guide to Admission Appeals 2016

    If it has not been possible to offer your child a place at Pimlico Academy, you have the right, by law, to appeal to an independent appeal panel. Please bear in mind that although the law allows you to have the opportunity to appeal against admission decisions, it does not give your child the automatic right to a place at a particular school. There is no guarantee that your appeal will be successful and each case will be decided on its own merits by the independently appointed panel.

    Appeals for Pimlico Academy are processed by Westminster City Council, and further information about the process can be found on the Westminster website and in the downloadable leaflet, a Parent's Guide to Admission Appeals. If you are appealing for Secondary Transfer 2016, your application outcome letter will include information on the timescale for submitting an appeal.

    In-year admissions

    Parents or guardians who would like their child to attend the Academy at any other time than primary to secondary transfer will need to apply using their home Local Authority’s application form for in-year admissions.

    Once an application has been received by a Local Authority, it will be forwarded to Pimlico Academy for a decision as to whether a place can be offered. If we are unable to offer a place, the child’s name will be placed on a waiting list in accordance with the published admissions criteria.
