Brownhill Learning Community


Brownhill Learning Community comprises of Brownhill School and Rochdale Pupil Referral Service. We provide educational provision for pupils who are out of mainstream schools for a variety of reasons that include exclusion, emotional and behavioural difficulties, medical reasons, pregnancy and young mothers.

We operate across three sites around the Rochdale Metropolitan Borough. Heights Lane is formerly Brownhill School located near to the centre of Rochdale. Darnhill Site is located in Darnhill, Heywood. Year 11 Centre is located in Belfield, Rochdale.

We believe in a Learning Community where everyone feels valued, included and achieves and we aim to create a nurturing environment.

BLC Summer Olympics 2016

The whole school community came together on Tuesday, 12th July 2016 to celebrate this 'Olympic Year' by taking part and supporting the BLC's very own Summer Olympics.

Pupils took part in a variety of fun and exciting events including welly wanging, three-legged race, straw bale hurdles, foam javelin and back to back wresting to name a few.

This was a great event and very much enjoyed by all who attended.
