Why Move to Oldham?
Situated in a fantastic location; Oldham lies just from the motorway network between Manchester and the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. It also lies amid the Pennines on elevated ground between the rivers Irk and Medlock.
Oldham is a borough of contrasts. From the vibrant urban towns in the west of the borough that sit adjacent to Manchester city centre, to the picturesque villages of Saddleworth that provide a gateway to the Peak District National Park.
Compared to other cities, Oldham does have a rather understated look and its once dubious reputation of low wages and high unemployment have held it back, but nowadays, there is lots more to this town than meets the eye.
Property values have been historically low; however, people are waking up to this and savvy landlords and buyers are now snapping up homes that would, in other areas, be well beyond normal means.
Its proximity to urban hubs like Manchester provides residents with a choice of commuting or gaining employment locally. At the last count there were over 6,000 businesses spanning a range of sectors including professional services, manufacturing and construction.
Local authority initiatives like “Get Oldham Working” have helped to create thousands of new jobs for the town and continue to do so.
Living in the town means you have access to more than 30 local parks and greenspaces with several Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty within a short distance.
Alexandra Park has previously won the Green Flag award recognising its amazing Victorian landscaping and architecture.
Oldham Schools & Education
When you are relocating with children, where you live in relation to good schools will be an important factor to consider.
The quality of education in Oldham varies, so it pays to do a little investigating before you actually move. Oldham’s educational facilities from nursery level all the way up has undergone massive improvements in recent years particularly regarding its further and higher education provision.
Currently there are over 90 state primaries (with a couple of new ones under construction) which feed into 12 state secondaries. Private schooling is available and provided by 6 institutions.
Outstanding primaries include; Bare Trees, Buckstones and Corpus Christy Primaries, all “outstanding” says Ofsted.
Among the top performing secondaries are North Chadderton, Saddleworth School and the Blue Coat CofE Secondary School.
Farrowdale House Preparatory School and Firwood Manor Preparatory School offer resident’s first-rate independent education. Both schools are excellent.
University Campus Oldham is a centre for higher education and a sister campus of the University of Huddersfield. Students can study a wide range of courses from foundation level right up to Honour Degrees.
