The College is currently closed, for most students, until further notice and the government is advising us all to stay at home as far as possible. We understand that parents’ admission appeals are very important to them and their families but we need to protect the health of parents, school representatives, the volunteer appeals panel members and all those involved in admission appeals. As a result there may be unavoidable delays this year in hearing the appeals. We are constantly monitoring government guidance on how admission appeals can be considered under their published process in the current extraordinary and turbulent circumstances. We shall update parents as soon as we can.
In the meantime, parents should still submit their appeals by the deadline of Thursday, 9 April either by posting the appeal form and any supporting documentation into the College or by scanning it and emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Appeals submitted after this deadline will be heard but probably not within the first batch of appeals, once these are scheduled. The Independent Clerk, Gary Wallis, will be in touch as soon as information is available and please continue check this website on a regular basis as we continue to review and plan accordingly.
We do recognise the frustration this may cause but these are unprecedented times and trust you fully understand this. If you wish to contact the Clerk please email: G.Wallis@tibshelf.derbyshire.sch.uk
Assuring you of our best attention at all times.
