Casual admissions and admissions during the year

In the first instance you should always contact Lewisham Admissions.  They will be able to advise you what you should do next: All Saints’ cannot offer places directly - the offer must come from the Local Authority.

Unsuccessful Applicants and Right of Appeal

It has to be emphasised that the School is invariably over-subscribed and that entry can be offered rarely to all candidates. Unsuccessful applicants will be given reasons related to the over subscription criteria listed above and advised of their right of appeal to an independent appeal panel. Where the Board of Governors’ decision in relation to an application for admission is not accepted, an appeal can be made by the Parent/Carer of the applicant via the School to an independent body. Appropriate forms are obtainable from the Headteacher and completed appeal forms must be returned to the School within 20 school days of the date of the letter giving notification of the admission decision for forwarding to the clerk of the Appeal Committee
