The Co-operative Academy of Stoke on Trent is looking to employ a Vice Principal

Thank you for your interest in the post of Vice Principal at The Co-operative Academy of Stoke on Trent.

There has been a significant improvement in Key Stage 4 outcomes over the period the academy has been open. 2017 was good year for GCSE results and we achieved a Progress 8 score of +0.11; following a score of +0.13 in 2016. We achieved well across the board with only maths and history classed as subjects causing concern this year. However, there has been marked improved in projected maths outcomes for 2018. We are also very pleased that far more students now go on to Level 3 courses at college and then onto university and higher level apprenticeships.

We have quadrupled the number of students going on to university since we opened as an academy. We were also proud to be regional winners of the DfE’s Character Awards in 2016. This was in recognition of the work that we have done over a number of years in the area of personal development. The award was built around our student voice and leadership; our enrichment programme known as “The Edge”; and our character education programme in Key Stage 3.

We have recently launched our “Good to Great” movement to focus on moving all areas even further forward. However, the newly created post of Vice Principal: Teaching and Learning and Staff Development is a key appointment in moving from being a very good school to one that is even better.

Further information about the Academy is available on our website via our Facebook page or via our Twitter handle @Coopacademy.
