On Friday 1st December, the academy hosted a prestigious event on behalf of our sponsor, The Co-op and The Co-op Academies Trust.  The event saw members from the National Co-op Council visit the academy from as far afield as Scotland, Ireland and Cornwall.
During the evening, the council members toured the academy and were able to speak to students about their experiences of school and about the activities that they were undertaking.
The evening was a true success and our students were an absolute credit to the academy.  One council member wrote to our Principal and said: “The young people that we spent time with were so welcoming and so enthusiastic about what they do and the aspirations that they have … I cannot remember an evening that I have enjoyed more nor a greater sense of the co-operative difference in action.”
