Year 7 Appeals – September 2021
If you have been refused a place for your child at The Richmond upon Thames School you have the right to appeal.
This year the final date for registering an appeal is 19 April 2021.
The admission appeals process is administered by the Richmond Independent Appeals Service, this ensures that it is separate from, and independent of, the school and the admission authority.
Information about the appeals process can be found on the Richmond Independent Appeals Services’ website.
