HI.

Thank you for your question . My name is Jo and I will try to help with this.

I am sorry but legal aid is not available for school appeals.

If you approach the CAB and ask them to refer it to the Bar Pro Bono Unit then it is possible that a barrister will pick it up for free.

Alternatively you can self represent. People do it all the time and they are fine.

Or you would have to pay privately. You will find a barrister under public access much cheaper than a solicitor.

Can I clarify anything for you?
