The Governing Body of The Raleigh School has agreed to buy back the services of the Surrey Schools Appeals Service who will manage the appeals process and hearings on the school’s behalf.

The school advises any parent(s) wishing to appeal to do so on-line or download the relevant documents from the Schools’ Directory on the Surrey Country Council website or the school may send the names and addresses of parent(s) wishing to appeal to the Surrey Schools’ Appeals Service who will send them the relevant Appeal form and detailed Guidance Notes.

The school will advise any parent(s) wishing to appeal to contact the Local Authority, if they have not already done so, to find out which school(s) in the area may have places available.

The school will advise any parent(s) appealing to return their completed appeal form to the Surrey Schools’ Appeals Service and not to the school direct.
