A message from Dr Wright, CEO, Wardle Trust.
‘Last week Wardle Trust, supported by the local authority, submitted an application to the Department for Education to enable it to open a new secondary school in Littleborough. If accepted it would open to Year 7 students in 2022 and will be located on the playing fields site.
The Trust will know by Easter 2019 if it’s application has been successful, although it will be one of many new school bids nationwide that will be chasing a relatively small amount of central government money, and is just one of four bids submitted for the Rochdale area. If the bid is not successful, the Trust is keen to continue working with the local authority in our attempts to reduce the shortages of secondary school places in the Pennine Township.’
