Our Values

We have a strong culture which creates a positive working environment. We follow the Co-op’s ‘Ways of Being’ which are:

Succeed together – Cooperating is what makes us different; we’re better and stronger when we work together.

Be yourself, always – We bring our best self to the academy, so that we each contribute and respect others for doing the same. Of course, being yourself isn’t about excusing poor behaviours that contradict our other Ways of Being Co-op.

Do what matters most – What matters most is ensuring that our students achieve the best possible outcomes.

Show you care – We care about our Trust, our colleagues, our students, their parents, our Co-op and communities, now and for the future.
