  • Parents will be advised to nominate/select/list three or more maintained schools in order of preference on their application including any schools outside Oldham.
  • All preferences listed on your application will be treated equally.  
  • If it is possible to offer a place at more than one school, the offer made will be to the highest ranking preference of the possible offers.
  • On 16 April 2019 all parents will be sent only one offer of one school place.
  • An email will be sent to you on 16 April 2019, or you can also log back into your account to view the offer made. Due to the Data Protection Act 1998, Oldham Council will not be able to inform parents over the phone which school has been offered.
  • If a place cannot be offered at any of the schools you requested, a place will be offered at the nearest school to your home address which still has vacant places.
