The Cranmer Education Trust, founded by The Blue Coat School, is starting a consultation about opening a new secondary school in Oldham.
Headteacher and CEO of the Cranmer Education Trust, Julie Hollis said, “The Local Authority’s data shows there is a considerable shortfall in secondary places. Plans to expand existing schools will help alleviate this, however these developments can take time. As housing developments continue to bring more people to the area, the pressure on secondary places in Oldham is in danger of becoming acute. We need to plan ahead, and make sure that Oldham has another really good secondary school to offer choice to all parents and to help build up the overall quality of education across the town.
