Timetable for Admissions Appeals for entry September 2018

The governors of Hamilton Academy have arranged for the Appeals Team in Legal and Democratic Services of Buckinghamshire County Council to hear admission Appeals. The Appeals Team will arrange for an Independent Appeal Panel (I.A.P.), made up of three people to consider an appeal. Both the Appeals Team and the I.A.P. are independent of the Admission Authority, the Academy Governing Body.
