About Us

Vision

Particularly amongst our poorest communities, existing educational provision is either not working, or not working fast enough. Using a radical approach to schooling, taking the best from international practice alongside new and original ideas, we will become an exemplar school transforming the academic achievements and life aspirations of children from amongst our most deprived communities.

We believe education to be the most effective tool in supporting our children to overcome challenging life conditions. We consider that success should not be dependant upon our children’s background, but upon opportunities that they have and the choices they make.

Collective Spirit Oldham is a high achieving ‘faith sensitive’ small secondary school meeting the needs of our children and families.

Mission

The solutions to poverty, under achievement, social exclusion, disadvantage and deprivation is most effectively realised through receiving the highest quality education. Unfortunately amongst our poorest communities, existing educational provision is either not working, or not working fast enough.

Our mission transforms established teaching practices through placing the needs of our children above existing teaching norms and doctrine. Using a radical approach to schooling, taking the best from international practice alongside new and original ideas, we will become an exemplar school transforming the academic achievements and life aspirations of children from amongst our most deprived communities.
