About Lipson Co-operative Academy

Lipson is a school pulsating with excitement, energy and self-belief. We are a co-operative school whose learners, teachers and parents believe in a value driven education. Our teachers and students are innovative and confident, caring and socially responsible, happy and successful.

When you join this forward thinking, vibrant and successful school you connect to the values of the international co-operative alliance:- social responsibility, equity, equality, solidarity, democracy, openness, honesty and caring for others. If you read carefully our last four Ofsted reports, three of which are graded as 'outstanding', you will see these values shining through.

At Lipson you become part of a family, not just a school, where everyone is valued as an individual on the one hand but expected to make a worthwhile contribution to that of the family on the other.

At its beating heart, co-operation is about working together to develop and maintain our outstanding ethos. It is something you will feel and see for yourself as soon as you walk through the door.
