Tameside operates a co-ordinated admissions scheme. This means parents only have to complete one application, and the schools can be inside or outside the borough. There is co-ordination between the council and other admissions authorities, and every parent who lives in Tameside receives one offer of a school place.
Parents can express a preference for up to six schools. These schools can be in or out of Tameside. If you live outside Tameside you should complete the form from your local authority, even if you wish to apply for a Tameside School.
All admissions enquiries in the first instance are to be directed to Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council (TMBC)
