Appeals

Hertfordshire Local Authority conducts appeals on behalf of Hockerill. The Hertfordshire Local Authority Schools appeals page can be found here.  

If you wish to appeal against the decision not to allocate a place to your child here, either as part of the secondary transfer process or an in year application, you can lodge an appeal as follows:

Transfer Appeals - Hertfordshire residents

Hertfordshire parents can access the online appeals system via their admissions account.

Transfer Appeals - Out of county residents

Parents who live out of county or who applied on paper can use Hertfordshire County Council’s online appeals system to lodge an appeal. Parents will need to contact Hertfordshire County Council’s Customer Service Centre on 0300 123 4043 in order to obtain their registration details to gain access to the online system.

In-Year Appeals 

Parents who have applied for an in-year place can use Hertfordshire County Council’s online appeals system to lodge an appeal. The Admissions and Transport team at Hertfordshire County Council will send a letter to parents with their registration details to access the online appeals system.
