A Warm Welcome
From our Headteacher
Tabitha Smith, Headteacher
Welcome to Co-op Academy New Islington! A short walk from the city centre, Co-op Academy New Islington is in a vibrant and exciting location next to wetlands and the Cotton Fields Marina. With ten years of headship under my belt, five of those years being here at New Islington, our team has developed a school that is a warm, encouraging and supportive place for children. We joined the Co-op Academies Trust in July 2022. The shared values between our school and the Trust meant that the partnership was perfect. At Co-op Academy New Islington, we encourage our pupils to approach all challenges and opportunities presented to them with confidence and resilience. Staff and pupils work together towards a common goal of high achievement for all, through a culture in which tolerance, openness and fairness is encouraged.

A high-quality and fun-experience for children of all year-groups, aiming to build life skills, improve abilities and confidence week by week through practical and hands-on activities in the outdoors. It gives our children the chance to explore, learn and discover at their own pace in a safe and supportive environment. We promote child-centred learning through play and we stimulate imagination, creativity and investigation by using a range of child-friendly, age-appropriate resources and natural materials.
