School Appeals

If your child is not offered a place at their chosen high school, you can appeal against that decision to an independent appeal panel. Request an appeal form by phoning Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council on 01254 666605. Once you have completed your form, please return it to the council.

Details of the hearing will be sent to you 10 school days before your appeal is heard. You will be invited to attend the appeal hearing to tell the independent panel why you feel your child should have a place at your chosen school.
