What the school says...

At Oldham Hulme Grammar Schools, our results are great and this mirrors our grammar school tradition. However, these results are meaningless without a flavour of what our school represents and how its culture and ethos permeate every child that is educated here.

Hulme has its roots back in 1611 when the school was first founded. It has undergone several transformations since then and now provides modern education but still has embedded within this our traditional values for ages from 3 through to 18. Ethnically and socially diverse, we are one of few diamond structure schools where at the nursery and sixth form ends of the spectrum, education is fully co-ed, whereas in between, the pupils are single sex educated yet mix outside of the classroom.

All round education is an important mantra of ours. We are not a hot house, rather we take the child and nurture them to fulfill their true potential. Just a cursory look at some of our notable alumni shows a rich mix of varied talent: Professor Brian Cox (physicist); John Stapleton (TV presenter); Sarah Lancashire (actress); David Nott (MSF surgeon); Nedum Onuoha (premiership footballer); and Nicola White (full England hockey) to name a few.

We are responsive to our pupils and engage in a proper dialogue to understand their needs and aspirations, whilst maintaining our high standards. It is no accident that we recently introduced A-level Dance due to student demand and this is now flourishing as a subject at sixth form.

If you take a look around our school, you will find the usual mix of new and old buildings. Yet there is a magical atmosphere and generosity of spirit which can only be appreciated by being here. Our numbers are good but our values are even better. Come and take a look for yourselves!
