Kaskenmoor School was a mixed gender comprehensive secondary school for 11 - 16 year old children in the Hollinwood area of Oldham in Greater Manchester, England.

The school had approximately 750 pupils in its attendance. Opened in the mid-1960s, Kaskenmoor was originally an amalgamation of Greenhill Grammar School and Hollinwood Secondary Modern School which was then called Kaskenmoor Comprehensive School. Even so the classes were setted top three Grammar School classes bottom three Secondary Modern classes each for the most part keeping their own teachers. The head Master Mr. Edwin Grey, and the teachers from the Grammar School continued to wear their gowns at Morning Assembly and some in class too.

In 2005 Park Dean, Marland Fold and Hill Top Special schools joined the Kaskenmoor campus founding the new special needs school New Bridge.[citation needed] Kaskenmoor's motto was "Building a Community of Learners". Because the school was built on marshlands of Oldham there were four separate buildings in the campus.

Kaskenmoor has now been amalgamated with South Chadderton School to become Oasis Academy Oldham.
