St Cuthbert's was founded as Bishop Henshaw School in 1968 and was Rochdale's first Catholic secondary school. It became a middle school when Rochdale adopted the three-tier system. It was extended into a secondary school and renamed St Cuthbert's High School during the late 1980's following the Diocese of Salford's decision to scrap the three-tier system. The school moved into new buildings in January 2014.
It is a voluntary aided school administered by Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Salford. The school mainly accepts pupils from Alice Ingham RC Primary School, Holy Family RC Primary School, Sacred Heart RC Primary School, St Gabriel's RC Primary School, St John's RC Primary School, St Mary's RC Primary School, St Patrick's RC Primary School and St Vincent's RC Primary School.
