If you have not been offered a place at Cranbrook School, the law entitles you to appeal against that decision to an Independent Appeal Panel. This panel is completely independent of the school and the Local Authority. The appeals are held at the school.
If you wish to appeal, please refer to the Appeals Timetable and download the relevant Appeal Form from the Downloads section (see right). Please do NOT use the Kent County Council form. In addition, it is suggested that you download the relevant Appeals Guide for Grammar Schools. Please read this leaflet carefully. The criteria which the independent panel will consider is different to non-selective schools.
You should include any evidence or supporting material with your appeal form and you MUST give the grounds for your appeal at the time you lodge your appeal form. Your appeal form will not be accepted unless you state the grounds for your appeal. You may appeal for more than one school.
