Hi all has anyone gone through the appeal process in Wirral.
Is it a formal or informal hearing that you attend ?
My son failed by 1 mark, 235 out of the 236 needed. :(

Anyone with any information would be greatly appreciated.

Had a hunt through past years and can't see much on appeals in Wirral. However appeal panels are much the same wherever as they are defined by legal act .. Have a look on the website

https://www.wirral.gov.uk/my-services/c ... sions/appe Download the forms and have a read - one of sections explains the structure..

Quote:
The School Appeals Panel is set up under the School Standards & Framework Act, 1998 as amended and the Education (Admissions Appeals Arrangements) (England) Regulations 2007. It is an independent Panel and is not a Panel of Wirral Council. There are three members of each Panel; a Chair who has no connection with the Council; a lay member nominated by the Council who has no connections with the Council (or the School) which would undermine his or her impartiality and a Panel member with experience in education who also has no connection with the Council or the school(s) involved.

I hope your appeal is successful, we always said if my daughter failed,then we'd rather she missed the mark by a mile, than being so close like your son. :(

In the Same Posistion, Son scored 235 missed by 1 point, feel the best thing to do is Appeal but dont really know of what chance he will have even with an Appeal.

IMO you should def appeal as you'd always think 'what if' if you don't appeal. Afraid I have no knowledge of the process though but I wish you the very best of luck.
