Admissions Appeals

If you have applied for, but been unsuccessful in obtaining, a place for your child at our school, you have the right to appeal. If you have not yet applied for a place, you must do this first. Please see our admissions pages for information on how to apply for a place. You can only appeal for a place in any academic year for a child once.

If you wish to appeal for a place at Caroline Chisholm School, download and complete the ‘Notice of Appeal’ form relevant to your child’s year group. Your form should be returned via the link below. Guidance notes relevant to your appeal are also available here. Further information on appeals is below. There is no need to contact our school directly to appeal, if you require further information, please contact our Admissions Officer.
