General Information

The Radclyffe School is the number one choice for children in Oldham because it provides them with a platform for great success and achievement.

The Radclyffe School is oversubscribed and first choice school preference for most children in the local area. Out of our over 1450 students, about 50% of children are from ethnic minority backgrounds, mainly Pakistani and Bangladeshi in origin. Some 30% of students qualify for free school meals or a clothing grant to help with the purchase of school uniform.

Our GCSE results continue to improve: 5+ A*-C grades 90%; 5+ A*-C including English and Maths 50%; 1 A*-G Grades 100%; average point score 488; and 622 A* and A grades in 2011. Due to the systems, structures, staffing and facilities we have in place, we are confident that the upward trend will continue.
