Joining the Co-op Academies Trust in September 2023 has been a really positive move for our students and community, this Trust believes in the power of community and this will bring great opportunities to all of us, whilst also being part of a rich and diverse network of schools in Bradford and beyond.

​​​​​​​What do people say?

An oasis at the heart of the community. Diversity is welcomed and celebrated. Leaders have high expectations for all pupils. Leaders aim for pupils to ‘keep up not catch up’. Pupils are happy. They thrive in this inclusive and nurturing environment.

Ofsted, Jan 2023

Leaders develop each pupil’s character by teaching them the school values. Pupils know and understand these values. They recognise and reward their peers for making the right choices. Older pupils are proud to be workforce monitors and contribute to the wider school life.

‘Being kind’ underpins all that pupils do. If pupils are unkind to each other, they are supported to reflect on how their behaviour has made others feel. Pupils have a voice and are encouraged to use it. This helps everyone feel valued, safe and happy.
