If it has not been possible to offer your child a place at Barclay Academy, you have the right, by law, to appeal. Please be aware that although the law allows you to have the opportunity to appeal against admission decisions, it does not give your child the automatic right to a place at a particular school. There is no guarantee that your appeal will be successful and each case will be decided on its own merits by the independently appointed panel.

Appeals for Barclay Academy are processed by Hertfordshire County Council, and further information about the process can be found on the Hertfordshire County Council website.
