Coopers School is one of the best in the country for student progress at GCSE and has received national recognition for the value it adds to students’ achievements at GCSE.
A recent in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England by SSAT, the national schools’ membership organisation for improvement and collaboration, identified Coopers School’s success.
We are raising money for 'Save the Children'. Students can donate and wear a Christmas Jumper instead of a blazer. Full uniform must be worn.
The Cooper community are asked to ‘Ditch their Blazers’ for one day only and wear a Christmas Jumper.
This is not a Non-Uniform Day
All other parts of the uniform stay the same (Shoes, Skirts, trousers, shirts, blouses and ties) except everyone can replace their blazer with a Christmas Jumper. If you do not wish to wear a Christmas jumper but would still like to make a donation please feel free to do so but you must wear your uniform as normal with blazer.
Coopers is a warm, welcoming and friendly School where all students are happy learners. Your child is the most important person to you and to our School. My mission as Principal is to take Coopers from being a good to an outstanding school.
Our website gives you a flavour and an introduction to our School and the exciting educational opportunities. All students are expected to be ambitious for academic success and personal development. The School has a strong academic tradition, a reputation for high expectations and standards and an excellent atmosphere marked by positive relationships.
Value added scores (how much students exceed their estimates by) have just been released. Our score puts us in the top 16% of schools nationally for Value Added.
Value added measures are intended to allow fairer comparisons between schools with different pupil intakes. The DfE publish value added measures from KS2 to KS4 which measure the progress that individual pupils have made from their KS2 tests (Year 6) to their KS4 GCSEs.
Pupil's value added scores are based on a comparison between their best eight results at GCSE and equivalent - sometimes referred to as their capped point score - and the median or middle performance of other pupils with the same or similar results at KS2.
The school has a 24-hour Absence Reporting answer phone for parents to report absences Tel: 0208 467 3263 (dial 1 when instructed by message) or text 07860 002420, clearly indicating your child's name, form and reason for absence.
Parents must inform the School by 8.30am at the latest. It is essential that parents report their child's first and each subsequent days absence. If the above procedure is followed, a letter confirming the absence is not required

Dropping Off and Picking Up in Hawkwood Lane and Morley Road
Excessive traffic in the lanes outside the School causes congestion that is very inconvenient to the community. Please avoid dropping off, collections and parking in these roads, particularly at peak times. This would be greatly appreciated.
If you are dropping off, please drop students off at a safe location in Watts Lane (Tiger’s Head road), reducing the congestion in Hawkwood Lane
