Here's a few bits of information that I have gathered from friends who appealed last year and from this forum.
- The appeals for St Bernard are held separately from those for Langley/Slough/Herschel.
- The appeals take place after allocoation day (1st March)
- Unlike in Bucks, the letter giving the result is also an offer for a place, if appropriate. If the appeal is for Langley/Slough/Herschel, the offer is for the highest preference school that isn't full.
The distinction between selection appeal and allocation appeal is a bit of a blur in Slough, and the process is far from being transparent.
Here's a quote from Etienne about appeals and foundation schools in general.
It's interesting that, nationally, a lot of foundation schools seem to avoid publishing their appeals procedure on their website. Often all they say is "details available on request"!
Even when they do publish the arrangements, it's not always clear how they handle the two different aspects to the appeal, i.e. the appeal against non-qualification, and the appeal against the school being full.
That said, Etienne's advice is very relevant to Slough, and it is worth reading this whole thread as well as the appeal Q&As.
