Brian Clarke Church of England Academy, Oldham

The Brian Clarke Church of England Academy in Oldham was opened in 2023, and construction was captured by our time-lapse camera. The new school was built in the heart of Oldham town centre, on the site of a former Sainsbury’s supermarket off Booth Street, which had been demolished prior to construction work starting.

The new school is named after the artist Brian Clarke, a painter and stained-glass designer who was born in Oldham. The motto of the school is Luceat Lux Vestra, from Matthew 5:16: “let your light shine”.
