About Lipson Co-operative Academy

At Lipson we like to do things a bit differently. Kindness is at the heart of everything we do so therefore the relationships between our people at all levels are crucial. Lots of schools talk about the importance of this, but for us it is the foundations upon which everything we do is built. In the classroom and around the school it is the quality of the relationships between our staff and our students that underpins every aspect of our work.

If you join us, you are not just joining a school, you become part of a family. It is a place where everyone is valued and known as an individual. Staff wellbeing is an integral part of our ethos and we are not afraid to say no to the latest initiative or gimmick if we do not think that it will add value to what we are already doing. Our core purpose is to raise levels of student achievement and we will only put our efforts into anything that we believe will have a positive impact on this simple manta. However, Lipson is also about working together and we aim to create an environment where students and staff can have fun, be valued and thrive.

We want our students to be confident, well rounded individuals who are fully prepared and able to play a full role in the world in which they live. It is important that they leave Lipson with the necessary skills and qualities required to make a contribution to society, but it is also vital that they leave us with the necessary qualifications to earn their way in the world.

Our students are fantastic young people and they are rightly very proud of their school. Our role is quite simple. It is to do everything we can to enable the teachers here to teach to the very best of their ability so that our students can learn to the best of theirs. We are not looking for someone who can keep things pottering along nicely, we are looking for someone who wants to change the world and have a major influence on the life chances of the young people in the community that we serve.
