Headteacher's Welcome

A short walk from the city centre, Co-op Academy New Islington is in a vibrant and exciting location next to wetlands and the Marina.

Our school is a warm, encouraging, and supportive place for children.

We set high expectations for our pupils’ educational outcomes and have high standards of behaviour. All within an exciting and engaging curriculum, taught by motivated and happy staff. Our pupils are eager and enthusiastic about:

  • learning
  • exploring
  • about their friendships
  • about coming to school

Our school is inviting and attractive so that adults and children enjoy being here. We are involved in our community, and parents are proud to send their children here.

We have an amazing team of adults who work closely with the children and parents. They ensure that each and every child has a first-class educational experience. Adults and children join together to find things out, discover talents and enjoy new experiences. We help each other to find new friends and to develop new enthusiasm.

We do this through well-planned, stimulating lessons. Learning at New Islington takes place both inside and outside the classroom, as we know that children benefit from a wide range of experiences, such as Forest School, trips and visits. We do this by being there for the children, listening to them, and taking the time to really get to know them in a caring environment.

Come and visit us; we'd love to show you around our amazing school!
