  • Year 11 Revision Sessions May 2024

    Published 21/05/24

    As we move towards the final exams, the next couple of weeks will play a vital part in pupils' preparation for their GCSE Exams.  As part of our ongoing commitment to our pupils' success, academy staff have voluntarily scheduled revision sessions over the half-term break.

    It is important that pupils attend all revision sessions that are relevant to them. Timetables have been shared with pupils, but a copy of the scheduled sessions can be found below. 

    Pupils are not required to wear their school uniform. However, they must wear clothes that are appropriate for school.  Mobile phones will also not be allowed during the revision sessions.  Light refreshments will also be provided for pupils. 

    Please remind pupils that not all areas of the school are accessible due to scheduled maintenance work. 

    Frequently asked questions

    What time should pupils arrive?

    Pupils should arrive 10 minutes before the revision session is due to start, and will need to stay for the full session. Pupils will not be allowed to leave early.

    Where should pupils go when they arrive at school?

    Pupils must enter the building via the main reception at the front of the academy (Victoria Avenue East). A member of staff will be there to meet pupils. All pupils must sign in when they arrive and wait to be collected by their subject teacher.

    What if pupils arrive late?

    We strongly advise that pupils arrive on time to avoid missing any of the sessions.  However, should pupils arrive late, they will need to wait in reception for a member of staff to escort them to their revision session.

  • Ofsted Inspection 16th - 17th April 2024

    Published 15/04/24

    Dear parent or carer

    Inspection of Co-op Academy North Manchester by Ofsted

    We have just told your child's school that we will inspect it on 16 April 2024. The lead inspector will be Jenny Jones, HMI. We are writing to you because we would like to know what you think about the school. Please take a few minutes to read the leaflet that came with this letter. It explains why we inspect schools and what happens during an inspection.

    Your views about the school are important to us

    If you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at the school (including pupils on sick leave or who are temporarily excluded), you can tell us your views about the school by completing Ofsted's online survey, Ofsted Parent View, at:

    Ofsted Parent View asks for your opinion on some aspects of your child's school, including the progress made by your child, the quality of teaching, how the school deals with bullying and poor behaviour. It also provides a free-text box for you to make additional comments, if you wish. The inspectors will use the online survey responses when inspecting your child's school. Written comments can also be sent to the school in a sealed envelope, marked confidential and addressed to the inspection team.

    To register your views, you will need to provide your email address, which will be held securely. It will not be used for any purpose other than providing access to the online survey. Neither schools nor Ofsted will have access to any email addresses.

    Please complete the online survey by 11am on 16 April 2024 as this will give the inspection team more time to consider your views. However, we will consider all online responses that are completed during the inspection, although the free-text box facility will not be available after noon on 17 April 2024.

    Speaking to an inspector

    If you are unable to complete the online survey, it may be possible to speak to an inspector during the inspection, for instance at the start of the school day, or to pass on messages to the inspectors if you are unable to speak to them in person. Inspection administrators will be happy to make the necessary arrangements. If concerns are raised about child protection, we may have to pass the information we receive to social services or the police. You can contact the administrators on 03000131833. Inspectors will be pleased to receive your comments, but cannot deal with complaints about individual pupils or settle disputes between you and the school.

    Gathering personal information on inspection

    Inspectors will gather any personal information necessary to assist them in inspecting a school. Our privacy policy sets out what personal information we collect, what we do with it, how long we keep it and individuals' rights under data protection legislation. The contact details for Ofsted's Data Protection Officer are: Email -; Post - Information management team, Ofsted, 2 Rivergate, Temple Quay, Bristol, BS1 6EH.

    Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the online survey.

    Yours faithfully

    Jon Winstanley

    Inspection support administrator

  • Year 11 Revision Sessions April 2024

    Published 01/04/24

    The staff at Co-op Academy North Manchester are doing their utmost to support all of our year 11 pupils to  prepare for their forthcoming GCSE examinations and assessments.

    Please find below details of the revision sessions that staff will be running over the Easter holidays.

    Our pupils' progress is very important, and they are being given the opportunity to attend some of the sessions detailed on the timetable below to ensure they have the best possible chance of achieving their target grade in the subject assessments. We would appreciate the support of our parents and carers in ensuring that pupils complete all work set over the holidays and attend any relevant sessions.

    We would also ask for support in ensuring that pupils attend these revision sessions promptly. Pupils are not required to wear school uniform, however their attire must be suitable for a school environment- cropped tops etc are not permitted. Mobile phones will not be allowed during any sessions. Light refreshments will be provided.

    It is really important that pupils only access permitted areas, as we have building work and deep cleaning taking place during the holidays. The car park and pupil entrance at the back of school will be closed, so all pupils will need to access the building via the front reception via Victoria Avenue East and sign in. 

    No pupils will be allowed to leave the building in the middle of a session. Pupils are expected to stay until the end of the session and be polite and courteous at all times to all Academy staff and guests.

    Please see the frequently asked question section on the timetable for any further information. 

    Yours faithfully,

    Mr N Lane 

    Assistant Vice Principal
