It could certainly be allowed and your reason is a good one. Is there any chance you could visit his new school while it's in session this year and see if it's as challenging as you think it might be?
Meantime, it can't hurt to ask for the list of what books they're reading in 7th grade this year in his new school and he could read those books himself to help him to feel up to date when he starts his new school.81561
You may have to insist a bit, but we did the same thing when my son experienced a wasted 6th grade in a substandard school. We had moved and the school's problems weren't obvious. His grades were high and that made it difficult for me to make them believe he had fallen behind, but we both knew he had.
He ended up in a private school for his middle school years. He never regretted spending an extra year and I was relieved he was in a better environment.
He went on to graduate from UCLA. Good luck with your decision. 81591
