There are a number of common questions asked during offer time. Although it’s impossible to have a response for every query, below is some basic information which should help you give guidance. Remember places will become available to be reallocated in the next round as places are returned.
If the parent does not want to accept the place they need to refuse it, the deadline is 16th March, 2020.
Parents have the right to Appeal and they have until 23rd March, 2020 to submit their appeal.
They need to visit Cardiff Council, Website www.cardiff.gov.uk and search for School Appeals.
Corpus Christi, St. Teilos, Whitchurch, Mary Immaculate, Bishop of Llandaff and St Iltyds High Schools all manage their own appeals. Parents should direct their appeal request to the school concerned and not through schools admissions as admissions are unable to help.
