Dixons Newall Green Academy


Year 7 – September 2024

For places starting in September 2024, the deadline to submit an appeal is 29 March 2024.

Appeals submitted by this deadline will be heard before 18 June 2024.

If you submit an appeal after these deadlines, it may not be heard until school starts in September.

In-Year appeals

Before you can make an appeal you must first have applied to the academy for a place. Details of how to apply can be found on our Admissions page under the heading In-year admissions. Once you have received a letter advising you that a place cannot be offered, you can then proceed to make an appeal for the academy if you wish to.

You can make a formal appeal to an independent appeal panel, for any school that you have applied for where admission has been refused. This is a legal process and places are not ‘reserved’ for appeal panels to offer.

In-year appeals will be heard by the local authority as soon as it is possible to do so.
