If your child is not allocated a place at our school, you have the right to appeal. It is advisable to consider alternative schools for your child, as only a very small minority of the appeals that are considered by Appeal Panels are successful. Officers at the Surrey Schools and Childcare Service (Tel No. 0300 200 1004) can assist you with queries on alternative schools in your area.
As a Voluntary Aided School, our Governing Body is responsible for handling our appeals. Any parent wishing to appeal against non-admission under our Admissions Policy criteria should write to the Chair of the Governing Body at St Martin’s C of E Voluntary Aided Schools, Worple Road, Epsom, Surrey KT18 7AA. Surrey County Council website also contains useful information.
