If your application for any Hounslow school is unsuccessful, you have the right to appeal to an independent panel. There is no appeal for nursery, as this is not statutory education.
We organise all school appeals in Hounslow, except for Gumley House Convent School who arrange their own appeals.
You may only make one appeal per school, in a single academic year, unless there are changed circumstances
Hounslow’s school admission appeals guide for parents will give you an overview of the appeals process. You can download this guide using the links on this page
A copy of the government’s Primary and Secondary School Admissions and Appeals Guide can also be downloaded from this page
