  • Successfully Open since September 2013

    We are now recruiting current Year 6 students for September 2015. We currently have a successful Year 7 & 8 cohort. Unlike other schools, we believe that it is better to build year on year until we have our full cohort of 5 year groups. Our approach ensures that the needs of our students are prioritised.

    Pupil Premium Funding

    Pupil Premium funding is provided in addition to the main school funding - aiming to address the underlying inequalities between students by ensuring that funding tackles disadvantage, reaches the students who need it most. Read how we spent the money we received in 2013/14.

    Why Choose Us

    In most schools in Oldham the majority of young people from our poorest families leave school without gaining 5 GCSEs Grade A to C including English and Maths.

    At Collective Spirit we believe this to be unacceptable and the school was created to challenge the failings of the existing education system

    We use proven techniques that guarantee success.

    An Inspirational Small School

    Essentially, we are an inspirational small school, with a grammar school offer for ordinary families who have the highest academic aspirations for their children and simply cannot afford the cost of such a school.

    We do not select by faith and our catchment area is inclusive enough to be able to take in pupils across Oldham.
