How to buy your uniform

This year the academy has decided not to sell our school uniform from school but place it in the hands of an external provider. This means that you will be able to purchase your child's uniform from Top Form in Oldham or Rochdale and now you will also be able to purchase it online from

I hope this makes it easier for you to be able to get yourselves organised for September looking smart and organised and ready to learn.
