Our philosophy as a sector is to provide an alternative way of organising and managing a school, that places it at the centre of its community and gives a voice to all the stakeholders that can make it and its students highly successful
At the Schools Co-operative Society not only do we co‑ordinate the ever growing network, we provide the guidance, advice, and support Co-operative
Trust Schools and Co-operative Academies will need as they grow and develop.
Co-ordinating Co-operative Schools
Whether the school is a Co-operative Trust School, a Co-operative Academy or one that is investigating the status, the Schools Co‑operative Society is the national co-ordinating body for this new and dynamic sector of state education.
Leading education through co‑operation
Co-operative Schools place a high emphasis on schools, teachers and the community working together to provide the best environment they can for young people. The development of young people into active global citizens is at the core of our philosophy.
