The academy was inspected by Ofsted on 13 and 14 March 2023. The outcome was that “Co-op Academy Manchester continues to be a good school.”


'Leaders, trustees and governors strive for all pupils at Co-op Academy Manchester to be successful. Pupils are encouraged to demonstrate the ‘ways of being Co-op’ in all that they do.'

Ofsted 2023


Some highlights from our most recent report:

'Pupils are confident that if they have any worries, staff will listen to them and provide them with appropriate support.'

'Leaders have set out high expectations for pupils’ behaviour and learning.'

'Pupils are proud of the diverse nature of their school community” and they “relish the opportunity to take on different responsibilities, such as representing their peers on the school council, being a prefect or being a librarian. Pupils realise the importance of supporting the local community.'

Understanding Ofsted inspections and reports

Ofsted have written a useful guide for parents and carers. You can find the latest version here.

Sharing your views with Ofsted

During an inspection, Ofsted will look at responses to their Parent View online survey.

You can complete this survey at any time during the school year, although during inspections there is an additional comments box you can complete.
