At Coopers we are community based on trust and respect that inspires resilience, ambition and success for all.
Our values guide our attitudes and behaviours in everything we do. Within our school culture, we know that trust is crucial in creating positive and productive relationships between staff and students. This is the cornerstone of our approach to behaviour and pastoral care. Respect ensures equality where all members of our community demonstrate consideration and kindness towards each other. We understand that learning is a journey and students need to be exhibit resilience and determination to reach their goals and achieve success. In Coopers School we have high expectations of all members of the community and push each other to be the best versions of ourselves.
In March 2018, OFSTED confirmed that Coopers is a good school.
Coopers is a well led school and the leadership team have maintained the good quality of education in the school and the passion shown by all staff for the welfare of each individual pupil results in a very caring and supportive environment where pupils feel safe and happy.
Our dedicated pastoral teams support and nurture our children so that we can ensure that we remove the barriers to success and enable all students to achieve. Our tutors take an active role in supporting and caring for our students and are the first port of call for all parents. Heads of Year and Guidance Managers offer additional assistance to students and parents to ensure a smooth transition from primary to secondary.
We believe in a holistic education where the academic curriculum is supported and enriched through extra curricular opportunities and experiences. We offer a broad and varied range of extra curricular activities ranging from academic interventions to a host of sporting activities to the creative and performing arts. We take great pride in our annual school performances, and students derive great pleasure from participating in all aspects of these productions. In the current situation of a global pandemic, our extra curricular activities are limited due to restrictions but we are eagerly planning for a return to a full timetable of events.
Students leave Coopers School with the skills, knowledge and experiences necessary to embark on the university or career of their choice.
