A Warm Welcome
From our Headteacher

Mr Richardson, Headteacher

I am incredibly proud to be Headteacher of Co-op Academy Stoke-on-Trent. I was appointed in June 2020 and I am delighted about what we have achieved over the last few years: in 2022 we were the highest performing non-selective school in Stoke on Trent and most recently Ofsted judged us to be a ‘good’ school where students ‘wear their school uniform with pride’ (Ofsted: May 2023).

​​​​​​​What do people say?

Staff work hard to help pupils become well-rounded young adults. Leaders set high expectations for what they want pupils to achieve and how they can broaden their horizons beyond the local area. Many pupils appreciate these opportunities and wear their school uniform with pride.”

Leaders have put in place a systematic intervention programme, including for those pupils who need support with their phonics. This support is proving highly effective in helping pupils to catch up.

Ofsted 2023

Pupils benefit from many different wider opportunities. Several pupils take part in the Co-op Young Leaders programme and get involved with community activities, including supporting primary school pupils and local charity groups.
