Schools & education Appeal against a school admissions decision

If you have applied for a school place, and that application has been refused in writing, you have a right to appeal.

We can't accept an appeal if you did not formally apply for a place because you were told the school is full.

How to appeal

Appeal directly to the school if you want a place at:

  • St James' C of E Primary School (Gorton)
  • King David Primary School
  • King David High School
  • The Manchester Academy
  • The East Manchester Academy
  • The Dean Trust Academy, Ardwick
  • The Communications Academy
  • William Hulme Grammar School Academy
  • Wright Robinson College.

For any other school:
