Organising and hearing appeals timetable

The timetables for appeal hearings for most school places in years R, 3 and 7 starting in September 2014 are detailed below.

These timetables only apply to those schools who are using the local authority's services for appeals. Other schools will have their own arrangements.

The list of schools this applies to can be found further down the page.

Secondary school places – Year 7, September 2014

  • Offers of places will be sent on 3 March 2014.

  • Appeals must have been lodged by 31 March 2014.

  • Appeals lodged by 31 March 2014 will be heard on or after 6 May 2014.

Appeals lodged after 31 March 2014, that could not be added to a scheduled hearing, will be heard at a later date to be determined.

Primary school places – Year R and Year 3, September 2014

  • Offers of places will be sent on 16 April 2014.

  • Appeals must have been lodged by 16 May 2014.

  • Appeals lodged by 16 May 2014 will be heard between 16 June and 23 July 2014.

Infant and junior appeals lodged after 16 May 2014, that cannot be added to a scheduled hearing may not be heard before 23 July 2014. This may mean that they will not be heard until the start of the new school term in September 2014.


You will receive a minimum of 10 school days notice of your appeal hearing date. You are able to waive this right if your appeal is lodged late and wish to have you appeal heard at a hearing already scheduled. Case papers will be dispatched to you within a reasonable time period before the hearing date.

Once you have received notification of the date of your hearing, should you wish to submit any additional evidence, this should be returned to Democratic Services, 1st Floor, Civic Centre, Southampton, SO14 7LY, in accordance with the date detailed in the notification.

Please note that it is possible to submit additional evidence up to and including the day of the hearing. The panel will take into account its significance and whether there will be a need to adjourn the hearing to allow all parties the opportunity to consider it.

Following the appeal hearing decision, letters will, where possible, be sent five school days following the hearing concluding.
