Edgar Wood Academy is proposed to open with year 7 students in temporary accommodation within the grounds of Hopwood Hall College’s Middleton campus in September 2021, with the permanent school building targeted to open in September 2022. Outline planning permission has been granted for the permanent site, which will be located on land at Bowlee, accessed off Heywood Old Road in the Middleton area of Rochdale. This will be a new modern building with state-of-the-art facilities.
