Align spreads with different page sizes

Hi all, wondering if anyone can help - I have a document set up for a digital publication in which there are a few spreads which have pages of different heights. I want these to read aligned at their top edge, however with the InDesign default of aligning centrally I can't find a way of how to acheive this. Can anyone provide a solution? Would be much appreciated.

Select the page with the Page Tool, then drag to the desired position 😉

Thanks Frans, however that's not what I'm looking to achieve here - instead of moving the page between spreads, I am looking for the spread to align along the top edge rather than its central axis. See below:

Yes, you drag the page to that position.

You need to use Page Tool - from the "main" toolbox - don't move pages on the Pages Panel.

Apologies, I haven't used that before as a means of handling pages. Thanks both - problem solved.

The Page tool gives you the most precision for moving pages. In addition to dragging pages up and down as @Frans v.d. Geest suggests, you can also change the Y (vertical) position of the page in the Control panel as shown in this example where page 2 is positioned lower than pages 1 and 3.
