The appeal process is a two stage one. The application to appeal is first considered by a Judge (not be a formal hearing). They will either give permission to appeal or dismiss it. If permission is given then there would be a formal hearing at the Court of Appeal. Three judges would consider the appeal. The Claimant, Defendant and any interested parties would put their cases forward at the hearing.
The Claimant (Right School Right Place) lodged an appeal application last week (10th August). The Defendant and interested parties are currently preparing papers to be submitted next week. These will be passed to a Judge to decide if permission to appeal should be given.
Currently there is no clarity regarding the timescale involved in this process. We will post updates as soon as any dates are confirmed.
