Rochdale Islamic Academy is an Independent day school catering for Muslim girls aged 11-16. The school provides a secondary education in line with the National Curriculum, integrated with Islamic teachings.
RIA was founded in 1995, commencing with 8 pupils initially housed in a small residential property.
As the school flourished, in 2013 a new building, formally The Music School on Green Bank Road, in Rochdale, was purchased to accommodate the growing number of pupils.
The new building comprises several specialist rooms: including an ICT suite, a library with ICT access, a Science lab, Art room, separate dining facilities, and two spacious halls for P.E as well as outdoor grounds.
