About Traded Services

Oldham Services is the single source for schools, academies and other organisations  to buy all of the services they need.

Ordering services

Some services can be ordered directly through this website. The service team will then contact you to confirm the order and arrange for invoicing.

For other services, please contact the relevant service team to discuss your needs and/or request a quote.

If you cannot find a particular service, check the main Contact page for a full list and contact details.


You do not need to log in to use this website, to contact teams or (where applicable) to directly order services.

Login details for the main Council site will not work on this site, and an account is only created if you place an online order.

If you do order any services directly through the website, then an account will be created for you. Then by logging-in you will be able to see your order history and manage your details. Also when logged in, your details will be auto-filled in the checkout area, so you don’t need to enter them each time you want to order services.
