The College is in the process of establishing a Multi-Academy Trust in full partnership with Oldham Sixth Form College from September 2017.  

Excellent transport links ensure that we are ideally located for both city centre Manchester and beyond.   

‘The school is a very harmonious community and leaders take great care to promote equalities. Pupils feel valued and celebrate diversity. Leaders and teachers take effective steps to remove any barriers to learning’. (Ofsted Good rating April 2016)

• has the passion and desire for their subject to inspire and enthuse pupils of all abilities.  

• is an excellent team player who is creative and innovative in their approach to teaching.
