Hertfordshire parents can access the online system via their admissions account, which will not be activated until the relevant national allocation day. Parents who live out-of-county or who applied on paper will also need to use the online system. Those parents need to contact Hertfordshire County Council's Customer Service Centre on 0300 123 4043 for their registration details in order to gain access, which will be available post allocations.
The system can be accessed via https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/schools-and-education/school-admissions/school-appeals/school-appeals.aspx

Additional supporting information
If an appellant wishes to any supporting evidence after lodging an appeal, they will need to get that to the Appeals Team at least 7 working days before your hearing, (not counting the day of postage or the hearing date).
Please remember that any confidential medical/social evidence submitted to the Admission Authority (AA) in support of your application will not be provided to an appeal panel. If you wish to rely on this in support of your appeal you will need to submit this documentation to the Appeals Team.
If the appellant has a short document (like a doctor’s letter which was not previously available), this will be accepted up to 4 working days before the hearing. Any additional evidence received after this deadline will not be circulated and the panel may not accept any additional information taken to the hearing.
