EDUCATION SOLICITORS & SCHOOL ADMISSIONS APPEALS SOLICITORS
If you have not been offered a place at your preferred school you have the right of appeal to the Local Education Authority or Academy and our education solicitors can advise you on the appeals process.
As a specialist education law firm we have highly experienced school appeals solicitors, we also have a solicitor who is an experienced School Appeals Panel Member and trained on how to make decisions on appeals, who can prepare evidence and advise you and your child. Our education lawyers have specialist expertise in advising on the school appeals process and can provide suitable guidance thereby enhancing your chance of winning your school appeal.
Our education solicitors have extensive experience of schools appeals law, procedure and the decision making process and we have a specialist solicitor who has served as a School Appeals Panel member for over three years in a large City Council. Our education lawyers will provide a holistic approach with support and guidance including advice on:
The likelihood of success of your appeal.
What steps you ought to take whilst waiting for the appeal to be heard.
The preparation of your appeal statement.
What supporting evidence to present to the Appeal Panel.
Assistance on how to present your case with short regular telephone confidence building practice sessions and advice on how to prepare for the hearing.
Representation on your behalf at the appeal hearing in exceptional cases only.
What to do if you are planning to move house or have moved house after school places were allocated.
The best steps to take if your appeal is refused.
Our solicitors hourly rate of charging does not apply to the school appeals service as our school appeals solicitors are passionate about assisting families whose child will suffer more prejudice than the school if s/he is not admitted into the preferred school. An initial telephone consultation for one hour is therefore charged at a fixed fee of £100 plus Vat and only meritorious cases will be progressed further by our school appeals lawyers after this initial assessment. There is no precedent system applicable to school appeals therefore the facts and evidence that lead to success in one case may not do so on another case. This is why you are likely to make a better decision for your child if you receive professional and realistic advice from our expert school appeals solicitors, as opposed to unrealistic promises that you will win your case. Rates will be affordable and agreed on a case by case and a stage by stage basis as the school appeals service will be tailored to meet your requirements. Our objective is to protect the child’s bests interests. There can never be any case that is guaranteed to win, however our school appeals lawyers can offer you is the best chance to win.
