Welcome to The Cooper School

The Post 16 Centre has now been open for 12 months and we have completed the first year of KS5 courses. We are proud to announce that the building has lived up to all its potential and aims of being a 21 st century teaching and learning resource built for the educational needs of Post 16 students. The rooms are large, bright and airy and the range of new technologies is used throughout the day to support the learning of the students. In addition, the cafeteria and common room have ensured that the environment fully supports the students in their educational endeavours. 
We believe we have a centre that is second to none and is fully state-of-the-art and aims for excellence in all areas.
The Post 16 curriculum was carefully designed to offer a broad range of courses that are challenging, exciting and relevant for the students; matching their needs and interests as far as possible. We wanted to give students the opportunity to study locally and not have the time and cost implications of travelling to other institutes elsewhere. Choosing subjects of genuine interest for students is the beginning of specialisation. The curriculum we are offering will ensure we are able to create a dynamic teaching and learning institution for all. The curriculum aims to support students in building on their academic success as well as preparing students for their adult life; both vocationally and academically. Extensive enrichment opportunities are available for all students to ensure the learning experience is as fulfilling and dynamic as possible.
We are proud to state that our £4.4 million Sixth Form centre at The Cooper School has been designed to be state of the art, eco friendly and carbon neutral. The building opened to Post 16 students at the start of the September 2011 academic year. The building is carefully designed to ensure that all Sixth Form students have access to high quality 21st century equipment and resources to support and encourage their learning. It is light, airy, extremely comfortable and fully equipped for the needs and requirements of young adult learners. It is a centre that provides a first class learning environment.
