Offers and Appeals

BCP Education Appeals Service no longer supports the appeals process for Corpus Christi School for academic year 2024/25 and beyond.

If you have been refused a place at Corpus Christi School, please see the information below on how to make an appeal. 

How to appeal


If your application for a Corpus Christi School place is refused, you have the right of appeal against this decision to an independent appeal panel.


This is known as a school admission appeal. This is governed by legislation produced by the Department for Education (DfE).


You can only appeal against a refusal of a place, so please don’t contact the school or local authority about an appeal until you've received a formal refusal letter or email.


Please click on the link below to complete a school admissions appeal form.

What you can appeal


Your legal right of appeal is against Corpus Christi School’s admission authority’s refusal of a place for your child.


You are not appealing against:


  • the planning and admissions policies of the schools – as long as they are legally correct and applied correctly. School admission policies are determined at least 18 months in advance – the appeals process is not the forum to raise issues with a valid legal admission policy.
  • your position on a school’s waiting list. 


If you lodge an appeal and it is not successful, your place on the waiting list is unaffected.

When you can appeal
