About Coopers School
Education for the 21st Century is driven by the unwavering belief that all children and young people, regardless of background or ability, should have access to a great education. Our vision is clear: to ensure welcoming and open schools for the local community, where every person thrives, makes excellent progress and succeeds.
Coopers School is a popular and over-subscribed 11-18 school with over 1,600 students, in the heart of the London Borough of Bromley. We strive to develop inquiring, well-rounded and confident individuals who help create a harmonious world through a shared understanding and respect for each other.
Coopers’ campus is set in 33 acres of parkland on the edge of Chislehurst. The School offers exceptional educational facilities which are continually being extended and developed. We have recently been successful in securing over £8 million to enhance our facilities in our peaceful setting. We have built a £3million Performing Arts Block which opened in September 2015, and we also are proud to have a floodlit Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) which complements our vast playing fields.
Resilience - We encourage our students to positively respond to challenges in order to make them resilient with regards to their attitude, optimism and ability to regulate their emotional responses.
Resources - Over 160 dedicated staff and 80 classrooms all located in 33 acres of conservation parkland with a history that goes back to the 1700s
High Expectations - We insist on high expectations and aspirations for all students and staff. There can be no excuses.
Student Voice - Coopers has a strong Student Leadership Team who represent the views of all students. The opportunities for leadership at all levels are exceptional.
Enjoyment - We engage our students by having an outstanding curriculum offer, supported by a vast enrichment and extra curricular programme
Ethos - Our ethos is one of care, celebration and reward underpinned by a very strong Behaviour for Learning system based on our core values of Trust, Respect and Resilience.
We live in a time of such rapid technological and scientific change that new ways of teaching are needed to prepare children for the world we live in today. Indeed, the way we educate children today must go beyond even that, and teach them how to lead the way in the world of tomorrow. Every young person today needs to know how to handle the mass of information that surrounds them and how to analyse this in creative ways, and our beautiful campus, therefore, provides a tranquil and inspiring learning environment.
