Please could you provide the number of parental appeals made to Simon
Langton Boys Grammar School, Simon Langton Girls Grammar School and Barton
Court Grammar School each year from 2015 -2017. Please could you also
state if these appeals were successful and the Kent test results for each
KCC do not administrate the appeals for either Barton Court Grammr School
or Simon Langton Boys Grammar School. You will need to contact these
schools directly. However, I am happy to provide the number of parental
appeals for Simon Langton Girls Grammar School including how many were
44 Appeals heard with 36 being upheld

26 Appeals heard with 22 being upheld
I am also pleased to provide the attached spreadsheet which includes the
Kent Test results for each student that was successful at appeal.
If you are unhappy with this response, and believe KCC has not complied
with legislation, please ask for a review by following our complaints
process; details can be found at this link

If you still remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you can
