We’re closing for most students

Following on from the government’s directive, from 23 March, the academy will only be open for students with Education Health and Care Plans, other vulnerable students (who will already have been contacted by school) and students of parents/carers who are defined as ‘Key Workers’. Please follow this link to see which employees fall into this category. 

If you believe you are a ‘Key Worker’ and have not already done so, please can you complete the following short survey to let us know if we should expect your child to be in school on Monday 23 March.

Google Classrooms

Most of our students are now successfully working from home using Google Classrooms.

To access work set by teachers, our students need to enter a code

Google Classroom Codes for all year groups and subjects.

Can I also please ask you to read my recent letter, which contains further details about steps we have/are taking to support students’ learning remotely and also a letter I have written to Year 11 and Year 13 students.

For parents of students who receive Free School Meals, the Co-op has very generously agreed to provide £20 vouchers, which can be spent in any Co-op store. This letter provides further details about the vouchers and how they can be spent.

We will keep in touch with you via our website, texts, and via Twitter. If you need to contact us, please can you do so via prie-info@coopacademies.co.uk unless you are concerned about a child protection or safeguarding matter, in which case you should contact either

Our staff, like you, are very worried about the uncertainty that lies ahead over the coming weeks and, potentially months. We will be doing everything we can to keep your child’s learning going from home. It has been humbling to see, hear and feel how our community has rallied together over the last week to move forward positively, as best we can. Thank you for your support.
