We've joined Co-op Academies Trust

Our school has officially joined Co-op Academies Trust! We're thrilled to join a Trust that'll help secure our future for the long-term - providing wonderful opportunities for our children, families and local community. 

We're the 32nd to join the Trust, which operates across the North of England. Co-op Academies have 5 other Academies in Bradford, including the nearby Co-op Academy Delius.

Dr Chris Tomlinson, CEO of Co-op Academies Trust, said:

“Co-op Academy Penny Oaks will bring expertise and experience to our Trust, and they'll benefit from the wealth of experience across our network of schools. As a Trust, we believe in clusters of schools working within regions in close proximity supporting and challenging each other. This school is passionate, diverse, and community focussed - fitting perfectly with our Trust’s co-operative values. We’re thrilled to welcome them and to be working together.”

Michelle Khambhaita, Headteacher at Co-op Academy Penny Oaks, said:

“This community needs great schools and we’re so proud to offer our children a strong education. By joining the Co-op Academies Trust, we join a network with service and community at the centre of their approach to education. We know that this will bring great opportunities to our students, families and our community for years to come.”
