2. Applications from outside Oldham
How to apply if you live outside Oldham
The Oldham online admissions process is only for children who live in Oldham.
If you live outside Oldham you can apply for an Oldham school, but you must apply through your local authority.

Are non-Oldham residents' applications treated differently?
Applications from residents outside Oldham are treated no differently than applications from Oldham residents.
If residents who live outside the borough have priority for a place over Oldham residents, we cannot refuse a place because they do not live within the borough.
