Welcome To Oldham Learning

Oldham Learning is the new and exciting improvement partnership for Oldham schools. We are led by local school system leaders and supported by Oldham Council and Oldham Opportunity Area.

We are committed to achieving excellent outcomes for all of Oldham's children and young people.

All the schools in Oldham are members.

Our Mission Statement

Our core purpose is for all children and young people in Oldham, including the most vulnerable, to be knowledgeable, kind, confident and articulate; achieving good outcomes that include, but go well beyond, standardised assessment data including closing the additional inequalities that Covid-19 has led to.

To enable this core purpose we will support:


School to school support

Schools to work collectively to enhance their provision and to offer mutually supportive school to school support.


High Quality Curriculum

Every school and college to offer an aspirational high quality curriculum, that meets the needs of a diverse population, including the most vulnerable and those with SEND.


Expert Practitioners

Every staff member to feel valued and encouraged to engage in professional learning opportunities to become an expert reflective practitioner.


Values-led Culture

Schools to have a cohesive, self-aware and empowering values-led professional culture of learning, including credible peer support with agreed outcomes to improve practice and provision.


A System That Helps Us Achieve Our Collective Aims

An Oldham learning system that helps us achieve our collective aims: through providing evidence and challenge on our collective strengths and areas for improvement that enables us to align our work with high quality wider services.
