A friend of mine attended two appeals (different schools) for her child recently and the appeals both had the same chair of appeal - is that common? how does it work? She knew the result of her first appeal before she went into the second, unfortunately she had been unsuccessful.

Aaaarrgghh ! What a situation !
We've found the same appeal clerk which wasn't a problem at all,& were warned in paperwork that sometimes panel members may sit on panel for more than one school.
After all,there isn't an endless supply of people queuing up for the job,the majority are also retired. Don't know about you,but I'd rather be swanning around Spain in my retirement than having the responsibility of deciding the fate of 11 year olds ! It would terrify me !
Sorry if that sounds glib-& it doesn't help your friend much,but unfortunately it does happen :(
Hope the second appeal was a success !

Perhaps he won't remember you specifically if he's been through so many already?

Best of luck with it, I shall keep my fingers *crossed* for you!!

Thanks SallyJ. My friend said she was warned this might happen - but it is still a shock, especially when she knows the chair of panel has obviously said no once.

Sounds a nightmare! Our 2 appeals were obviously on the grounds of why a school was the best for DD and at times were the exact opposite of one another ie single sex/ co-ed; Grammar/ Church etc etc. Felt bad enough appealing for such different things but no choice.
