Admission Offers - September 2022 Entry

March 1st 2022 - Essex County Council have now notified parents and carers of the allocated secondary school for their child/children starting Year 7 in September 2022.

Essex County Council have issued the following information regarding appeals:

If you have been refused a place at any school for which you applied, you have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel. Appeals must be lodged within 20 school days of being refused a place. There is no guarantee of success with any admission appeal. We, therefore, advise you not to refuse the school place offered until you have secured another place for your child’s education.
