Year 7 Admissions Appeals

Parents will have the right to appeal to an independent panel. Further information can be found in the local authority’s secondary admissions booklet by following this link Walsall Secondary Admissions

The deadline for lodging an appeal with the Academy is Friday 19th April 2024. Appeal applications should be made in writing, using the Year 7 Appeal Form below, to the Clerk to the Appeals Panel at Brownhills Ormiston Academy.

To make an appeal, you will have to set your case out in writing and attend an appeal hearing.

It’s important to be realistic about your reasons for appealing and the chances of being successful. An appeal can prolong the period of uncertainty for you and your child.
