About Us

St. Cuthbert’s is an 11-16 voluntary aided school providing a Catholic education for pupils in the Rochdale area. Over the years we have developed close relationships with our partner Catholic primary schools: Alice Ingham, Holy Family, Sacred Heart, St. Gabriel’s, St John’s, St. Mary’s, St. Patrick’s and St Vincent’s.

We offer all our pupils the experience of belonging to a caring Christian community, where each person is valued.


We strive to ensure that each young person is safe, happy and successful.

We believe that everyone is made in the image and likeness of God. We believe that all members of our learning community are born for greatness; hence, we take great pride in nurturing the talents and abilities of every pupil and encouraging everyone to use their gifts for the benefit of others.

We promote the highest possible standards in pastoral care, self-belief, behaviour and uniform. There are clear guidelines for what is expected of each individual and how everyone can make a positive contribution to both our school community and to the wider community.

Belonging to the vibrant community of St. Cuthbert’s is a life changing experience.

Join us.
