Working together for better academies and strong communities.

Welcome to

Co-op Academies Trust

Co-op Academies Trust, founded in 2010 is a group of schools across the North of England doing things differently. Made up of Primary, Secondary, Special and Colleges we operate under the belief that by raising aspirations, offering a leading education alongside forward thinking experiences and opportunities outside of the classroom, we can develop tomorrow’s leaders and help communities.

We want a fairer world for all, and this is why we work so closely with our sponsor the Co-op Group, who support us in our Cooperative initiatives.

About Joining Us

When it comes to choosing a Trust, there is no singular decision as important that a school can make for their students. We believe that this relationship can only work if the fit is right, if you think your vision and values align with ours, get in touch to explore whether being part of the Co-op Academies Trust is right for you and your school.

We work closely with all of our schools to help them offer the greatest opportunities to their students as well as be a central point for their local community. High challenge and high support is our mantra.

    Working for us

    We believe that it is the staff in our academies that drive improvement on a day-to-day basis, and we are looking for colleagues who want to make a real difference to the lives of the children they work with; who want to challenge the consequences of poverty and disadvantage through education; who are committed to their own professional development and who want to be outstanding teachers, classroom assistants, administrators, leaders, and support workers across a wide range of roles in our academies.

    We offer a leading ITT Programme as well as plenty of opportunities for growth and development in our academies and central team.
