Welcome to Kingsland School

Welcome to the Website of Kingsland School. We hope that the information provided gives you an insight into the work of our school and the values and vision that underpins our work.

We cater for pupils aged 11-16, aiming wherever possible for successful reintegration to a new mainstream school or accreditation leading to pathways into further education, work based learning, apprenticeship or the world of work at the end of Year 11.


We provide the following:

  • 6th day provision to pupils permanently excluded from Oldham Secondary Schools and Academies. 

  • Up to 25 hours educational placements and home tuition for pupils whose social, emotional or mental health needs create a barrier to their attendance at school.  

  • Placements for out of borough 'difficult transfer' pupils, for example pupils who have previously attended a  Pupil Referral Unit in another Local Authority. 

  • Re-integration support to pupils returning to a new mainstream school.

  • Permanently Excluded Pupils undergoing statutory assessment. 

Oldham Council and Kingsland School are consulting on the opening of Laurel Gardens; a provision for up to 12 children and young people based at our Laurel Bank site. This provision is in consultation as a need has been identified within the borough for a small provision for children and young people who meet the following admission criteria:

  • Recent and relevant written advice from at least one or more of the following:
