How to apply for a place at Saddleworth School


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 prospective 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. Please email:

Each school has a designated Planned Admission Number (PAN), for us we have increased our intake as we move into the new school for September 2022 to 300.
