Welcome to The Oldham Academy North!

A further welcome from our Trust, E-ACT, can be read here

We are delighted that you are joining us in September and we can’t wait to meet you. We understand moving from Primary School to Secondary School can be an exciting but anxious time for both students and parents and we are committed to ensuring the transition is as smooth as possible for all students.

We have put together a range of resources and events to help you get to know the academy and introduce you to key members of staff who are here to support you through your transition.

Transition Days and Open Evening

Unfortunately due to ongoing restrictions we are unable to run the transition events previously advertised. Please see details of our Summer School below!

No Transition Day Letter 

Summer School

We will be holding our annual summer school from Monday 19th July – Friday 23rd July 9:30am – 12pm and all our future Year 7s are invited!

This is a fantastic opportunity to allow your child to meet various member of staff and also students from different primary schools who they will be sharing classes with from September.

The sessions will include a variety of subjects which will allow your child to see a range of subjects they will be studying from September. There will also be some health and well-being sessions running throughout the week to support with mental health.

Applications for summer school are now closed.


Virtual Tour

We understand a lot of parents and students didn’t get the chance to visit our Academy this year and being able to look together at home may ease some anxieties and help you get to know your way around, as well as being able to meet all your teachers. Please view our virtual tour:
