Brownhill Learning Community School

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 such as, exclusion, emotional and behavioural difficulties, medical reasons, pregnancy and young mothers.

What we do

We operate across three sites around the Rochdale Borough. Heights Lane is formerly Brownhill School located near to the centre of Rochdale. Darnhill Site is located in Darnhill, Heywood. The Year 11 Centre is located in Belfield, Rochdale.

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

At all key stages we aim to offer a broad 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.
