Our Values 

Whilst all schools in the Trust demonstrate a strong commitment to co-operative values and principles, the close proximity of the academies in West Yorkshire in particular has helped to facilitate co-operation and reinforce our belief that these values and principles are crucially important.

We follow the Co-op’s ‘Ways of Being’ which are:

  • Succeed together – Co-operating is what makes us different; we’re better and stronger when we work together.
  • Be yourself, always – We bring our best self to the academy, so that we each contribute and respect others for doing the same. Of course, being yourself isn’t about excusing poor behaviours that contradict our other Ways of Being Co-op.
  • Do what matters most – What matters most is ensuring that our students achieve the best possible outcomes.
  • Show you care – We care about our Trust, our colleagues, our students, their parents, our Co-op and communities, now and for the future.


If you believe in our values and have experience for this role, we would love to hear from you!
