Dear Parent/Carer

Re: Applying for a Secondary School place for September 2023

Your child is due to start secondary school in September 2023. 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.

The online system will open on 1 August 2022 and close at 5pm on 31 October 2022.

We recommend that a minimum of three preferences are made for any application.

If you don’t have access to the internet, there are computers in all Oldham’s libraries and at the Civic Centre – Access Oldham. Help to complete the application is available at the Civic Centre – Access Oldham between 10.00 am and 12 noon every Tuesday and 14.00 pm and 16.00 pm every Thursday.

For faith schools you will need 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 on the above telephone number.

Yours sincerely,

Andy Wood

Education Provision Manager
