Welcome to

Co-op Academy North Manchester

At Co-op academy North Manchester, community is at the heart of everything we do. We aim to connect with our community and serve them with our facilities and outreach projects which are predominantly pupil led. By connecting with our community we model to our pupil what it means to be an active and engaged citizen.

We believe in having the highest aspirations and expectations, so that everyone achieves excellence in all that they do, we are committed to not only ensuring our students achieve while they’re here but are equipped to lead happy and successful lives when they leave us.

A Warm Welcome
From our Principal

Sharon Hands, Principal

I am extremely proud to be the Principal at this Academy. Each day I see our pupils being offered a range of experiences both inside and outside of the classroom that are equipping them with the skills to go on to lead happy and successful lives.

These values consistently underpin the actions that are taken by leaders and staff at the school. They work together and share a commitment to the pupils.
