You have the right of appeal to an independent appeal panel against the refusal of a place at this school.  If you would like to appeal against the decision, please visit Appeal Information or contact the County Admissions Team on 0300 555 1377 to request an appeal pack.  This provides an option for appeal papers to be completed and submitted online or written on a paper version of the appeal forms and submitted in the post or by hand.  Please contact the school if you would like to appeal against the decision.  You will be advised what you need to do and sent the appropriate form and guidance notes. 


If your child is due to start school for the first time, you will need to make an application to Hampshire County Council at www.hants.gov.uk/admissions.

 Secondary Transfer

As Wellow is in the Mountbatten School catchment area, and Wellow School is a ‘feeder’ school, most of our children transition there for secondary education.  The Mountbatten School website can be accessed here.
