The Brian Clarke CE Academy: School Term Dates 2022- 2023  

Please see below the term dates for The Brian Clarke CE Academy. 

2022-2023 is the first year of our new school, and we are bringing together a new community of students and staff for the first time. To ensure that students get the best possible start to their secondary school, the first week of term will be devoted to staff induction and training. Term commences for students on Monday 12th September at 8.15am.

As a Church of England school that represents a multi faith and multi-cultural community in Oldham we have included both Christian and Muslim holidays and celebrations in our term dates. 

Advance notice of the move to our permanent site:

Our permanent site is on programme to complete and handover in late April 2023. We will confirm the moving dates closer to the time. To enable staff to complete the move and orient themselves in our brand-new home, so that they can best support students, it is likely that there will be 3 days when pupils will need to work at home, with learning set by teachers through the online platform.
