School admissions appeals process

​How to appeal 

If you’ve made a request for a school admission and you’ve had that request denied, you have the right to appeal.

You can request an appeal by email or in writing to the Education Department.

What happens next

If a hearing is necessary it will be held by an appeals panel.

The appeals panel will be made up of:

  • a senior member of the department who hasn’t been involved in the case
  • either the Minister or Assistant Minister for Education
  • an independent member of high standing in the community​

The decision of the appeals panel is final and you can’t request a further appeal.

However, if you feel you’ve not had a fair hearing, you may complain to the States of Jersey Complaints Board

​It’s up to the board whether or not they accept the case and hold a hearing or not.

Further information about appeals is available below.
