There is an appeals procedure which can be followed by any parent whose child has not secured a place at St Andrew's. Please log in to your online application at www.hertsdirect.org/admissions and click on the link 'register an appeal'.
In Year appeals
Please follow the procedure above using your registration details.
Appeals resulting from in year admission applications will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
Additional supporting information
If an appellant wishes to submit further evidence, which was not included with their initial appeal, they should ensure this is received at least 7 clear working days, not counting the day of postage or the hearing, in advance of your appeal.
Please remember that any confidential medical/social evidence submitted to the Admission Authority (AA) in support of your application will not be provided to an appeal panel. If you wish to rely on this in support of your appeal you will need to submit this documentation to the appeals team.
Only a short document, such as a doctor’s letter not previously available, will be accepted up to 4 clear working days prior to the hearing. Any additional evidence or information received after this deadline will not be circulated and may not be considered at the hearing.
The Statutory Appeals Committee will be composed of representatives from the Department for Education.
Parents have the right to be heard personally by the panel if they so wish.
