School Admission Appeals

Download your free guide to the school admission appeals process for Hertfordshire and beyond.

The school admissions appeal process is complicated, but our team of experience solicitors are here to help guide you. 


We are able to offer legal advise for primary school appeals and secondary school appeals (including in-year appeals for parents new to the area or wishing for their child to move schools).

We recognise that parents want certainty at the outset of what the cost will be and so we offer a fixed fee school admission appeal package.
This fixed fee covers a meeting or detailed telephone call with you and the preparation of comprehensive and persuasive grounds for your school admission appeal. For a further fixed fee, we can also represent you at the oral hearing of your school admission appeal.

To learn more about our appeals service and fees, please complete the enquiry form below. Our education team will then be in touch with you directly and check for any conflicts that may prevent us from being able to advise you, as there is a limit to the number of pupils per school that we are allowed to represent; so it is vital to act swiftly.
