If you have not been offered a place at The Henrietta Barnett School, the law entitles you to appeal against that decision to an Independent Appeal Panel.  This panel is completely independent of the school and the Local Authority.  The appeals are usually held at the school.  Please note that some of the arrangements for appeals are different to previous years.
