Coppice Primary Academy is a large school for pupils aged 3-11, located near to the centre of Oldham. We are part of the Focus Trust.

Our motto is ‘Learn and Grow Together’. By working hard individually and in teams we constantly strive to achieve the best for children and families at Coppice.

Children and their futures are at the heart of our thinking and decision-making. We believe that by teaching children to work in teams, to think critically and to constantly improve we will equip them to be life-long learners and to be strong members of their communities.

Thank-you for visiting our website.


Coppice is to undergo extensive building work on both buildings during the summer break. This will involve a new roof, refurbishment in Key Stage 2, and later,  improvements to the office and entrance areas.

The intention is complete the work during the summer break to minimise disruption to learning. However, things can and do go wrong, so we are informing parents now, that there is a possibility that we will not re-open until Thursday 4th September 2014.

We will update you of the progress here, as well as by text messages – please ensure that we have an up-to-date number in the office. Check our Twitter messages on the right hand side of the website also!

You will notice scaffolding around the building this week – please take extra care and take note of signs. All activities for the children will continue as normal, with the safety of everyone at the front of our minds.
