Following the Judicial Review, it is now essential that a decision on the new school’s location is made without any further delay.
Our children and grandchildren deserve the best educational facilities for their development and future.
Saddleworth School is officially a ‘Good’ school and the new facilities will make it even better.
The Liberal Democrats believe that a new school is a much better option than no school – and that is the choice we face.
Alan Belmore says “After years of debate, we are all now left with a straight choice:
Either a new Saddleworth Secondary School in Diggle or face the real risk of the existing school buildings in Uppermill closing due to their bad condition. If the school closes, our children face being bussed to failing or inadequate schools in Oldham.
I understand why many people wanted the new school in Uppermill but the Government would not fund it. Saddleworth School provides a really good education in difficult conditions. I am now asking local people to support the new school and provide the best education facilities and opportunities for our children.”
