Primary Academy is a large school for pupils aged 3-11, located near to the centre of Oldham. Our Academy is part of the Focus-Trust and caters for over 550 pupils.
Our skilled and dedicated staff work hard to provide a wide range of educational experiences for the children in a safe and vibrant environment. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, blending the essential basic skills in literacy and numeracy, with a wider curriculum based around ‘Learning Challenges’.
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.
Our website will give you lots of useful information and a ‘flavour’ of what we do, but a visit to the academy will tell you much more about us. I look forward to welcoming you if are able to do this.
Mr. John Taylor
Head of Academy
The short video (below) will give you a ‘flavour’ of life at Coppice. It was recently made by our Y5 pupils as part of a Trust-wide video project. If you would like to know more, you will find a wide range of information within this website. We also welcome visits to our school – the best way to find out what it is really like!
