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.


Mr Berry, Head Teacher

It is my pleasure as Headteacher to be able to welcome you to our school website.

Co-op Academy New Islington is a vibrant academy where children are enthusiastic and motivated to learn. Children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that the opportunities we provide are memorable and relevant to our pupils both now and in the future. 

We want children to be happy, confident, and curious about their learning. Their wellbeing and happiness are our priority. Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning that will help them develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We make sure individual talents can be spotted and developed to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential.

The Academy has a passionate and dedicated team that strives for the highest standards in everything we do, and this is further embedded through our successful relationships with families, the local community, and the other Academies in the Co-op Academies Trust. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and academy, regard you as an active partner in your child’s education, and value your interest and support.

I am very proud to share our wonderful opportunities and developments with you. This website aims to give you a taste of the academy as well as provide regular, updated information for families and children.

We always look forward to welcoming visitors and would love to show you around our amazing academy!

Mr Joshua Berry, Headteacher
