Radclyffe School (Lower)
Broadway, Chadderton, OL9 9QZ, UK Oldham

The Radclyffe School is a ten form entry school for girls and boys aged 11-16, which has been designated a specialist technology college by the government. We have over 1,350 students and over 150 staff. We serve the local community of Chadderton, but attract students from a wider area. Parents of children in over 40 different primary schools choose to send their children to The Radclyffe School, including those living in the surrounding communities of Alkrington and New Moston.

The school is housed on two sites. Our Lower School is on Broadway and our Upper School is nearby on Hunt Lane. Although we very much regard ourselves as one school we also think that being on two sites gives us some of the benefits that small schools have; we are able to get to know our students very well; for their part the students appreciate the friendlier small school atmosphere.

Students in Years 7 – 9 are based at our Broadway building and spend most of their time there. The building has its own extensive facilities including science laboratories, a library and modern information resources centre, five computer suites, and full sports facilities which include tennis courts and large playing fields. A new canteen has just been constructed on the site. Each area of the curriculum has its own suite of fully equipped classrooms.

Most of the lower school work in technology goes on at the Hunt Lane site, in the modern facilities of our purpose-built Technology Centre. Here all the students follow a range of courses in art, craft and design, information technology, and food technology. The Centre is equipped for work in electronics, photography, pottery, and textiles. The Lower School also houses our BEST Centre funded through Excellence in Cities.
