Brownhill Learning Community

Welcome to Brownhill Learning Community


Brownhill Learning Community comprises of Brownhill School and Rochdale Pupil Referral Service. We provide educational provision for pupils who are out of mainstream schools for a variety of reasons that include exclusion, emotional and behavioural difficulties, medical reasons, pregnancy and young mothers.

We operate across three sites around the Rochdale Metropolitan Borough. Heights Lane, formerly Brownhill School, located near to the centre of Rochdale. Darnhill Site is located in Darnhill, Heywood. Year 11 Centre, formerly Saxon Hall Study Centre, is located in Belfield, Rochdale. We believe in a Learning Community where everyone feels valued, included and achieves and we aim to create a nurturing environment.

“You and your staff go the extra mile every day to build positive relationships with your pupils.”
