Crompton House School Celebrates 90 Years
Crompton House School was founded in 1926 by two sisters Miss Mary Crompton and Mrs Anne Ormerod, They gave the Crompton family house and an endowment of £20,000 for maintenance to the Manchester Diocese. The house dates back to 1710 although the Crompton family can be traced back to the Magna Carta in 1066. The school opened on 1st October 1926 with 25 pupils as shown in the picture. This picture was re-created on the first day of the Autumn Term with some of the 223 pupils that started at Crompton House on 7th September 2016. We now have over 1300 pupils aged from 11 to 18 years.On Friday 30th September the school is holding a service to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the founding of the school at Oldham Parish Church and all the pupils will be attending. The service will be presided by the Bishop Mark Davies, with an address by Canon Maurice Smith, Director of the Manchester Diocesan Board of Education. All pupils and staff will receive a metal pin badge commemorating the event. On the following Tuesday, 4th October, all the school will be in a school photograph to mark the occasion. This photograph will be on sale later this term. The flag below was given to the school by the Year 11 pupils in June 2016.

It was a great day for our Year 13 students when they received their excellent A Level results on Thursday 18th August. The overall pass rate of 99% was higher than last year, 50% of the grades were A*, A or B (higher than last year) and 25 of the 28 subjects achieved 100% passes, again higher than last year. In total eight students achieved 3 grade A passes or better.
Mr Newell said “These are excellent results and show our continued aim to improve year on year. Our students have worked really hard and the excellent commitment of the Crompton House students, staff and parents has been reflected in the grades. I am particularly pleased that our students have gained places at a wide variety of universities studying some really exciting courses. Medicine has been particularly popular this year with at least 5 of our students who will be studying to become doctors up and down the country.”
Thursday 25th August was a great day for our Year 11 students collecting their GCSE results. The proportion of pupils achieving 5 A* to C grades including English and Maths is 77%, higher than last August’s results and over a third of the grades achieved were A* or A.
Mr Newell, headteacher said “I am very pleased to congratulate our Year 11 students for their brilliant GCSE results. Year 11 have been a credit to the school over their 5 years with us. As well as being hard working academically they have been outstanding at all the other aspects of the school including the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Drama, Music, Sport and Charity work. They have been supported by enthusiastic and hard-working teachers, their parents and each other.”
