Appeals

Prospective parents should firstly contact their son’s primary school for a Headteacher’s Appeal and also ensure The Norton Knatchbull School has been named on their common application form.

Kent County Council (KCC) will issue offer letters to all parents of prospective Year 7 students on 1st March 2023, which will state the school that the child has been allocated. Parents who are not happy with the school that their child has been allocated can appeal this decision. 

You are unable to appeal for a secondary school place until after National Offer Day (1 March 2023).
