Our experienced lawyers can advise you on every aspect of admissions, including:
The setting of fair over-subscription criteria which comply with the School Admissions Code

Admission appeals, including training the Independent Appeal Panel members
Responding to the Schools Adjudicator
We also have experience of advising schools on more complex issues such as receipt from parents of misleading or fraudulent admissions applications, advising academies on admissions requirements contained within their Funding Agreements, and Equality Act requirements when making admissions decisions.
On average the Admissions Codes are revised every two years. Our specialist lawyers are frequently invited to write and present on legislative revisions, which ensures that we keep you up to date on these important developments.
