Welcome Message

Beaufort Co-operative Academy is a rapidly improving, mixed comprehensive Academy, catering for students of all abilities and backgrounds, including an increasing number who chose us above other local ‘selective’ schools.

All of our students are encouraged to aim for excellence and to fulfil their individual potential - academically, socially and personally. We want them to become successful, confident and caring adults who will be able to play an active part in society where co-operation, adaptability, enterprise and consideration for others are increasingly important. Our strong commitment to equality of opportunity and equality of esteem is intended to ensure that all students, regardless of ability, aptitude or background, can fulfil their potential.

We expect our students to have high aspirations and their academic progress and examination success are ensured by high quality teaching, first rate facilities and a culture of challenge. Everyone is valued as an individual, with a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities enabling talent and creativity to be identified and nurtured. Traditional values of self-discipline, politeness, responsibility and sensitivity to the needs of others underpin the Academy ethos and Co-operative values. We take great pride in the warm personal relationships which exist and the involvement of all students in some form of community or charitable service.

Increasing demand for places at the Academy has led to a substantial building programme, resulting in new or refurbished facilities for Art and Photography, Humanities, Performing Arts, ICT, Vocational Studies, Mathematics and Sport. We have recently completed the construction of a new Post 16 Centre for our increasingly popular Sixth Form. Extensive links are enjoyed with partner schools as well as local community and business organisations, particularly through membership of The South Gloucester Learning Trust. We particularly value the tremendous support of parents, recognising their key role in the learning process.

I am sure your sons and daughters will enjoy being part of Beaufort Co-operative Academy. They will be given every opportunity to gain academic success and personal fulfilment and to develop their talents and social skills in a friendly, supportive environment.
