Where there are more applicants for the available places within a category, then the distance between the Ordnance Survey address points for the school and the home measured in a straight line will be used as the final determining factor, nearer addresses having priority over more distant ones. This address point is within the body of the property and usually located at its centre. Where the cut-off point is for addresses within the same building, then the single measure between address points will apply and the Local Authority’s system of a random draw will determine which address(es) receive the offer(s).

Mount Carmel is now subsidising the cost of bus fares by 50% on 867 & 869 bus routes covering routes from Oswaldtwistle and Clayton-le-Moors. The school also runs transport from the Baxenden area. Details regarding travel and bus passes can be obtained from the school.
