About Us

I am honoured to welcome you to the website of the Co-operative Academy of Stoke-on-Trent as the Principal. The Academy has gone from strength to strength in recent years and has consistently been one of the best schools in the region for the progress that the students make.  Our motto as an Academy is to ‘be the best’ that we can be.  We should aim for the top and work hard to achieve well. In order to ‘be the best’ we want all our students to:

  • Be organised             
  • Be respectful
  • Be presentable
  • Be hardworking

We are a caring and supportive community; we pride ourselves on providing high challenge but also significant support for our students, whether that support is academic or social and emotional. We are proud to be a diverse community, we welcome everybody. Our core values are equality, responsibility and respect. Our behaviour and rewards system is built around these core values. We are conscious that we are shaping young people for the future and not simply training them to pass exams.

The Academy is part of the Co-operative Academies Trust (CAT), a multi-academy trust with academies in Stoke-on-Trent, Manchester and Leeds.  

In September 2012, we moved into a brand new £23m building, complete with the very best facilities for our students.

Please enjoy our website, we hope it helps you to learn more about our wonderful Academy

Mr N. Lowry
Principal
