The beat-the-system guide to school appeals – just £6.49

Updated for 2013 Nationwide & Hertfordshire versions.

We feel for you. We've been there, done that. And now we want to help you take on the system – and win. Not getting the school you want is incredibly stressful and puts a strain on the whole family.

You might consider selling up (average cost of moving: £16,500 in the South East). Or forking out to go private (average annual cost: £10,239).

But there is another option. Appeal. A third of all parents will win their appeal – so isn't it worth your best shot? Our invaluable guides will help you through the next few months, holding your hand, every step of the way.

'Good tips' Daily Mirror

There are two versions: the Nationwide Guide and the Hertfordshire Guide. Both are packed with advice and inside information. They have been updated to incorporate changes in the admission system that came into effect in February 2012 as well as more recent changes. The guides set out your legal position as simply as possible, and will help you consider ways to challenge the admission authority’s decision. They are equally relevant for primary and secondary appeals, and you can read about the particular challenges faced by anyone appealing for an infant place. Designed to help you through the difficult months ahead, they are available for just £6.49 each.

Payment options

PayPal: You can pay via PayPal. This is a secure system that enables you to pay using your PayPal account, debit or credit card. The guide will be sent out automatically by email as soon as payment has been processed.
