Information about school allocated places for September 2019 will be sent out by the local authority on 1st March 2019.

If a student has not been allocated a place at Bishop Stopford School, parents/guardians do have the right to appeal against this decision. Dates for appeals will be listed below when we receive the latest information.

In order to appeal for a school place, a request must be put in writing to:

Clerk of the Appeals Panel
Diocesan Board of Education, Bouverie Court, 6 The Lakes, Bedford Road, Northampton, NN4 7YD

or e-mail

The Clerk responsible for arranging the appeal will provide the appellant with at least 10 school days' notice of their appeal date. This notification will include a deadline for any additional evidence to be submitted before the hearing.

The Clerk will send the decision letter within five school days of when the decision is made (the only provision being that this is subject to the number of appeals that are heard).
