Why OHGS

Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Oldham Hulme Grammar School, an independent day school for boys and girls aged 2-18. We are academically selective and have a long tradition of our students achieving excellent examination results; however, what our pupils do outside of the classroom is equally important to us.

The school has undergone several transformations since it was originally founded in 1611, and provides a high quality modern education underpinned with traditional values. Proud to be ethnically and socially diverse, we are a ‘diamond model’ school where the nursery,infants, juniors and sixth form are fully co-educational, whilst Years 7-11 are taught in single sex classes, yet able to mix socially outside of the classroom.

Our approach to education is holistic and we encourage all our students to fulfil their potential both academically and through the wide range of extra-curricular opportunities that we offer. Hulme helps to mould students who are well-rounded, confident and successful; our alumni include Professor Brian Cox (physicist), Sarah Lancashire (actress), Dr David Nott (surgeon), Nicola White (Olympic Gold medallist) and Nedum Onuoha (Championship footballer). We are proud of our students, who year on year produce excellent public examination results, compete at a high level on the sports field and excel in music, drama and other extra-curricular areas.

From nursery to the sixth form, Oldham Hulme is a happy school where pupils, staff, parents and visitors alike regard out family atmosphere as a defining feature. Please feel free to visit us anytime and you will be guaranteed a very warm welcome.
