Oldham Council has a duty to protect the public funds it administers, to prevent and detect fraud and to ensure information held is accurate and handled with full regard to the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998. To carry out this duty we may share the information we hold about you where the law allows it, with other sections of the Council, other Local Authorities and other Government agencies for comparison purposes.
Please complete the online school admission application through this website if you pay your council tax to Oldham LA. Otherwise, please apply to the council that you pay your council tax to. You will still be able to apply for Oldham schools using their application. Only one application can be made for any school(s) in any borough. Please see list of neighbouring boroughs below.
