Secondary School Admissions 2023-24


Your child is due to start secondary school in September 2022. This is a very exciting and important time. I am writing to make you aware of how and when you need to apply and where to access information to guide you through this process.


You will need to complete an application using the online application system available on the Oldham Council website. It’s quick and easy and ensures school offers can be made efficiently via e-mail. Applying on line is the only form of application as Oldham Council no longer provides paper application forms.


Please click on the picture link to apply online.


If you don’t have access to the internet, there are computers in all Oldham’s libraries. You will need an email address, these are very easy to set up and staff will be happy to help. 


Some voluntary aided schools may want you to fill in a supplementary form or provide documentation in addition to the application you make to us. Supplementary forms are available from and returned to the relevant school. 


To enable you to have a look at what is on offer, all Oldham secondary schools will be holding open evenings during the autumn term. You will be able to access further information, a guide and links to school websites by logging onto


Should you have any initial queries please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions Team.
