At Saddleworth we are looking for people who are ambitious for our students, ambitious for themselves and who are passionate about working with young people to ensure that they fulfil their full academic potential and develop into happy, confident, compassionate, and successful young adults. We are a community, we work and learn together and we support and care for one another. This is what makes our school unique and special.

Saddleworth is a comprehensive school and the only local authority maintained 11-16 school in Oldham. The school is significantly oversubscribed and is forecast to remain so for years to come. It serves a semi-rural area; students join us from villages such as Delph, Dobcross and Uppermill as well as areas closer to Oldham such as Lees and Springhead.

Due to our success, the school has grown over the years and we are now able to accommodate 1380 children, organised into five year groups with up to 280 students in each. We have recently moved into a brand new purpose built school building with a wealth of facilities. This will not only support us to provide a first class learning experience for our students but will also mean that we can continue to grow and increase our student number to 1500 over the next five years.

Currently, we have 82 teachers and 77 support staff at the school. Their hard work, dedication and generosity of spirit is a key strength of our school. We invest heavily in our staff and their development and as part of our commitment to ‘empower and inspire’ everyone in our school community. We want to support colleagues to develop and grow in their roles and be able to take advantage of the many opportunities for career progression. We have a comprehensive CPD programme in school which supports colleagues at all stages of their career.

We also are an associate partner of The Dovestone Learning Partnership made up of eight partner primary schools and expect to become a full partner now that we have moved to our new school building.
