Welcome to the Co-operative Academy of Stoke-on-Trent, where after four years as Vice-Principal, I am proud to now welcome you as the Principal.

The Co-operative Academy of Stoke-on-Trent is a place where we push all to be the best that they can be irrespective of their starting point.  All of our students feel valued and included but recognise that achievement is the key to success. We are thoroughly proud of all our recent successes.  In 2014, we became the most improved school in Stoke-on-Trent and we are currently recognised as a Leading Edge school due to the phenomenal progress that our students make, which puts us in the top 2% of schools nationally.

We combine the traditional values of equality, responsibility and respect with contemporary best practice in teaching and technology, set in a fabulous new £23 million building.  With these core values in place, we aim to send out into the world students that are happy and educated with the drive and ambition to ‘Be the Best’.

Choosing the right secondary school to send your son or daughter to is an act of trust – but I hope that once you have come to know us, you will find that The Co-operative Academy of Stoke-on-Trent is a school you can choose with confidence. Please do therefore come along to our Open Evening on the 18th September and meet with us.  If you wish to come for an informal look around with either myself or a member of my Senior Leadership Team please contact the school on 01782 882300.

I very much look forward to meeting you and your son or daughter.

Mr Nick Lowry
