Welcome to the forum!
We are preparing for a late appeal but would like to check if the CC had a right to withdraw the school place after more then two weeks?
It's a bit of a grey area.
An appeal panel is required to decide whether the admission arrangements were lawful and correctly applied, so ask them politely to consider this matter. Mention briefly Ombudsman complaint 99/C/1876.
The problem is - different panels will probably come up with different answers! However, even if the decision were not to be in your favour, there may be a lot of sympathy for you which could help at the 'balancing stage' (whether your reasons for wanting a place outweigh any prejudice to the school).
Also, what are the main points that we should focus on in our appeal?
See Section C as a whole, and in particular: http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... -school#c2
