Welcome to

Co-op Academy Failsworth

The central focus at Co-op Academy Failsworth is the achievement of our pupils. This is not solely defined by academic standards as we recognise that achievement will take many forms depending on the individual potential, interests and talents of each young person. We want all pupils to fulfil their ambitions whether they be academic, musical, sporting or creative. We believe a rich and varied curriculum is important to shaping a young person’s potential.

A Warm Welcome
From our Headteacher

Phill Quirk, Headteacher

Welcome to Co-op Academy Failsworth. It is a privilege to serve the Academy as Headteacher. My staff and I truly believe Co-op Academy Failsworth is unique in its care and support for pupils and the quality of learning experiences we can provide. We are very proud of being part of the Co-op Academies Trust and we feel the strong co-operative ethos this provides is a perfect fit for our Academy. We have adopted the Co-op ways of being as a guide for life in the Academy.

Pupils benefit from a wide range of opportunities to support their personal development. There is a rich menu of clubs and sports for pupils to choose from.
