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.
Sixth Form Appeals
You cannot appeal until AFTER you have your results.
Please download the Sixth Form Appeal Form. There is a Sixth Form Appeal Guide available to download.
You will be required to demonstrate why you did not achieve your predicted grades. The Appeals Code does not allow the Panel to take into account any letters from staff employed by Cranbrook School.
If you wish to appeal against an In-Year Admission decision, please download the relevant Appeal Form from the Downloads section (see right). In addition, it is suggested you download the relevant Appeals Guide for Grammar Schools. Please read this leaflet carefully.
In-Year Appeals will be held within 30 school days of the Appeal Form being lodged.
