Step 3 - apply for a secondary school place

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Only residents of the Rochdale borough should apply using our online service. If you live in another local authority and you wish to apply for a Rochdale school, you must apply to your own local authority, specifying your preferred Rochdale schools. Your local authority will inform us of your application.​

If you wish to apply for an independent school, you'll need to apply directly to the school for a place, so you don't need to use our application form.

Before applying

You'll need:

  • A valid email address to complete the online form.
  • Your child'​s unique number (UID) we sent you. This will help you complete the form faster by automatically adding some of your child's information.​
