    North Chadderton Lower School ,
    Explored 23/3/2013

    Chadderton Grammar School on Broadway, a mixed school, was officially opened in October 1930 by David Lindsay, 27th Earl of Crawford.
    It was for 300 pupils from Chadderton, Failsworth, Royton and Crompton. Extensions to the school were opened in September 1935. By 1950 it had 700 boys and girls, 800 by 1954, and 900 by 1958. In 1957 it was decided to split the school into two single sex schools. In 1959, the boys left for the new grammar technical school, and the girls stayed at the old site.
    Parents protested about the move. Chadderton Grammar School for Boys was on Chadderton Hall Road, and concentrated more on science and maths. It had around 600 boys.
    Comprehensive

    In 1974, the school's administration moved from the Lancashire Education Committee to Oldham MBC, and secondary schools were re-organised in September 1975 and the school became a comprehensive mixed school. The lower school on Broadway of the North Chadderton secondary modern school was merged with the school.[/COLOR]

    North Chadderton Secondary Modern - July 2015
    Looking through these pics of my old school certainly brings back memories. Such a shame it had to close. North Chadderton Secondary Modern had an enormous history of good teaching standards, pupil development and opportunities.

    Hi Miss Mayhem, As a new member I have just seen the attached pic of the demolished school. How sad it is....No doubt houses will be built there instead of utilising what was a good building. I just wonder what happened to all the 'silverware' the school won over the years, and the photos of pupils from the 60s?

    Hi , I'm really not sure to be honest no doubt someone got their hands on the silverware over time .
    It is a shame they couldn't convert the building itself instead of making more box houses to cram more people in.

    messing about
