Bromley STEM Challenge Day
close

On 23rd June a group of 11 academically able students from Y8 and Y9 attended the annual Bromley STEM challenge day held at Greenwich University.

Challenges included: building a paper bridge capable of holding as much weight as possible; building a powered dragster car that was the quickest over a 5 m track (a team from Coopers had the fastest time of 3.5 s); building a robot capable of detecting different heat signatures; and finally, creating an e-fit of a mobile phone thief.

This last challenge resulted in some particularly funny e-fits of Dr Fishwick. All students from Coopers performed well, with us achieving some runners up awards for individual challenges. However, the stars of the day were Simeon Rachev and Ben Baguley, who were in the overall winning team.

For the first time, children adopted from care and those who leave care under a Special Guardianship Order or Residence Order will also attract the Pupil Premium Plus.

If you think your child is in one of the above categories and you are willing to share this information please contact Carol Cahill on 0208 467 3263 extension 259 or at ccahill@cooperstc.com

Top 16% of Schools Nationally
close

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.
