Admissions and choice of school
Every parent wants the best possible education for their child and, for many, this begins with getting their child accepted at a particular school. Parents can have a preferred school for many reasons - perhaps a particular school is well-known for its successful results, maybe the location is important, or perhaps you would like your child to go to a school where they will already have friends.
Of course, there is often high demand for the most popular schools and many parents and children can find that they have been refused by their first choice of school. This can be a stressful and upsetting experience and you may need the help of a specialist solicitor to explain what your options are and help you plan your next steps.

There are specific timescales involved and if you miss the deadlines your case won’t be given priority or may be disregarded entirely.
