You normally have 20 school days from the date you were notified that there are no places available.

It would probably help them to get the appeals organised if you return the form as soon as possible, though.

You don't have to state your case at the moment - you could just write "Details of case to follow".

I agree that there's no need to prove academic ability.

For typical reasons, see:

Although it's a good idea to be present for stage 1 if possible, it is optional.

I'm a bit doubtful that you could be sent information.

I think your best course of action is to ring up the Appeals Manager (which you need to do anyway to let them know you can't attend). Ask if there's any way round the problem. We have heard on here of a 'mini stage 1' at stage 2, when someone has genuinely been unable to get to stage 1 and has contacted the office in advance to express their concern.

Hi have received papers for appeal could anyone shed any light on how information is useful for the appeal? Also what kind of questions they are likely to ask? What should be my opening statement ? I'm struggling with what to say at the appeal .. Is it similar to 11 + ?

Depends what your case is.

A summary of your reasons for wanting a place at the school?

Hi Etienne I've looked at reasons for wanting school place I'm afraid our case may not be very strong as DD wants to go to an all girls school and also be with her friends . My preference is based in fact I think gis preform better academically in single sex schools and I also attended an all girls school . Also school used to have sciences
Specialism which is her favourite subject .

As far as school case goes in my appeal hearing how can I use it to suggest no predijuce by admitting an extra child

Possible questions might be about your reasons for wanting a single-sex school
http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... school#c36
and whether there is evidence of high ability in science, or of any extra-curricular interest in the subject (science club? visits to science museum? future career plans?).

Is there any particular reason she needs to be with her friends? How has she settled at her current school? Hasn't she made new friends?

See C1(b):
http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... -school#c1
(If this is a group hearing, don't worry, as there will be other people asking questions.)

Hi I have recurred my papers for appeals have found that Bucks admissions have attached my appeal papers for SHF to AHS papers what action if any is open to me? I'm worried AHS having seen the appeal paers for the other school may refuse the appeal as they may think were not really serious about application to AHS.

Also in answer to your previous questions re interest in science Dd is interested in career in medicine . She has attended after school science club at middle school also as part of gifted and talented group she attended local secondary after school fir their 'university ' classes . These were classes for able kids in science .

It is SHF that has science specialism ... not AHS.

Why did you appeal for a school you don't want?
