Hulme Grammar School is a private grammar school in Oldham, Greater Manchester, England.


Oldham Grammar School was founded in 1611 by several charitable individuals including Laurence Chadeton, but closed in 1866 and was refounded, under the Endowed Schools Act 1869 (hence the claim to be a continuation of this earlier school is debated). The doorway of the original Oldham Grammar School building with its date stone and a window were incorporated into the current school building in the 1920s.[1] When the school was refounded in 1887 it obtained some money from a charitable trust created in 1691 by a bequest from William Hulme, after whom the new school was named. The main buildings, incorporating were erected in 1895 by the Hulme Trust.[2] The first headmaster of the new era was Samuel Ogden Andrew, who later achieved acclaim as a translator of Homer.[3]
