Oldham Council is the admission authority for all community and voluntary controlled schools in Oldham.
Applying to Saddleworth
We appreciate how important a decision like this is and we thank you for considering us. We are immensely proud of our school and the students with which we work. Each year we open our doors and host an Open Evening to allow prospectus parents and students a chance to come and see what an amazing school this is. We also offer 2 open mornings where you are able to tour school whilst the children are in lessons and learning is taking place. We believe this shows the confidence in what we offer and will allow you to be reassured that this really is a Good school.
If you have missed the above opportunities and would like to arrange a visit to school then please contact the school to arrange a mutually convenient time for a member of the senior team to take you round:
Each school has a designated Planned Admission Number (PAN). For us at Saddleworth this is 280 and last year we accepted 280 students.
There were 543 applicants that listed Saddleworth as one of their choices. The last child given a place was admitted under criteria 6 of the admissions policy and lived 3.108 miles away from the school.
