Hathershaw (or archaically Hathershaw Moor) is an urban area of Oldham, in Greater Manchester, England. It occupies a hillside to the immediate south of Oldham's town centre, and is bound by the neighbourhoods of Coppice and Fitton Hill, on the northwest and southeast respectively. Hathershaw, which has no formal boundary or extent, is bisected from north to south by the A627 road which leads to Ashton-under-Lyne.

Historically a part of Lancashire, Hathershaw is one of the oldest recorded named places of Oldham, occurring in a deed for 1280 with the spelling Halselinechaw Clugh.[1] Existing as a manor house in the 15th century, Hathershaw Hall was the home of a Royalist family in the 17th century who lost part of their possessions due to the English Civil War.[1]

Hathershaw is an area identified by the Housing Market Renewal Initiative as having terraced residences unsuited to modern needs, and thus is being gentrified.[2]

The Hathershaw College of Technology and Sport (formerly The Hathershaw College) is a secondary school in Hathershaw. It is a co-educational school of non-denominational religion, and was given Technology and Sports College status under the Specialist School Programme.[3]
