As Head Teacher of Brownhill Learning Community, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our amazing learning community.

Our website will offer you a flavor of the rich and diverse learning learning experiences Brownhill pupils are offered through our dedicated and enthusiastic staff team.

We aim to offer the best quality education to all our pupils irrespective of the referral reasons.  We strive to support a timely return to mainstream education if this is the most appropriate course of action.

At all key stages we offer abroad and balanced curriculum that ultimately opens a range of pathways post 16.  We have an extensive range of qualifications our pupils can follow and provide high quality teaching and support to enable them to access these.

Pupils follow the National Curriculum in a range of subjects but a keen emphasis is placed on the acquisition of good literacy and numeracy skills.

We place as much importance on the social development of our pupils as we on the academic and therefore offer a range of therapeutic interventions from hypnotherapy through to equine assisted therapy.  These support the curriculum and allow our pupils to grow socially as well as academically.

Or flexible and creative approach to education allows us to tailor packages of support and learning programmes that will engage our pupils and motivate them to move on in their education.  Much of our learning will take place outside the classroom.

We work will an extensive range of partners including Rochdale Schools to provide the best learning opportunities for our pupils and celebrate the positive contribution our young people make to our town.
