This page contains information about In Year Admissions (i.e. admissions to all year groups), and Appeals.

In Year Admissions (i.e. admissions for all year groups) from September 2023 to July 2024

Skinners’ Academy’s Admissions Policy 2023-2024, which can be accessed below, governs our in year admissions for this period. A copy of the Skinners’ Academy Prospectus 2023-2024, some additional information from the prospectus and a brief Skinners’ Academy Admissions FAQ sheet which you may find helpful can be accessed below.

Applications for In Year places at Skinners’ Academy should be made via the admissions team at

Hackney Education here.


The Academy’s oversubscription criteria (which apply if there are more applications than places) are clearly explained in our Admissions Policy 2023-2024 which can be accessed below.

Mid-term Appeals


If you have not been offered a place at Skinner’s Academy, 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. All appeals will be heard online which has the advantage that your appeal can be heard from your home or place of work.


If you wish to appeal, please use this link to complete your appeal online. Please do NOT use ANY other appeal form or send your form to your local authority. It is suggested that you download the explanatory booklet about appeals which you should read before you complete the appeal form. Booklet Link


You should include any evidence or supporting material with your appeal form and you MUST give the grounds for your appeal at the time you lodge your appeal form. Your appeal form will not be accepted unless you state the grounds for your appeal. You may appeal for more than one school, but on different forms.


Any letters or reports that you wish the panel to see should be uploaded at this time.  You are asked to bear in mind that if you later send additional information, the closing date is 5 working days before the STAGE 1 hearing.  All appointed panels have agreed NOT to take any late letters or reports after the 5 working day deadline.  This will be strictly enforced.  For secondary/primary transfer appeals, the hearing will take place at least TWO months after the refusal letter.  This gives you plenty of time to get your evidence together if you act early and take account of school holidays.


Please note that the online form will ask you to download two utility bills dated in the last THREE months.  If you do not have access to a scanner, please take two photographs with a mobile phone and upload the photographic files.


Full details about the hearing will be sent to you with your invitation to the hearing.
