Radclyffe School (Upper)
Hunt Lane, Chadderton, OL9 0LS, UK Oldham
+44 (0)161 633 2120


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.

The Hunt Lane site is the base for students in Years 10-11. The buildings are modern and set in extensive playing fields. The students at Hunt Lane will all be following examination courses and we are keen to ensure that they have the equipment and accommodation necessary to provide them with the opportunities for academic success. Facilities include the newly designed Technology Centre, a suite of laboratories, and five computer suites which are used widely by students in all subjects to help them with their work. A new teaching block, containing four classrooms and a modern science laboratory has been built. There is also a sports hall and fitness room. A modern national standard running track and athletics facility has just been completed, and a new sports hall and indoor running track will further enhance our excellent sporting facilities.
