School Admission Appeals

You have the right of appeal against the refusal of a place at any school you listed on your application form. You can only appeal for schools which you have already applied for.

You can submit your appeal using the links below. Appeals for most Haringey schools are arranged by an external independent appeal clerk (external link). An independent panel will hear your appeal and their decision is binding for both the admission authority and the school.

If you want to appeal for Mulberry Academy Woodside, St Thomas More Catholic School, or Harris Academy Tottenham these schools arrange their own appeals and you should contact these schools directly

We strongly recommend that you accept the place you have been offered, as this will ensure that your child has a school place in September. Accepting a school place will not influence the outcome of your appeal or your child’s position on a waiting list.
