Information about this school

The Coopers' Company and Coborn School is an above average-sized school.

A high proportion of students stay on to the large sixth form. The Coopers' Company and Coborn School converted to become an academy school in April 2011. When its predecessor school was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good overall.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students' progress and attainment. Most students are of White British heritage and the proportion from minority ethnic groups is well below the national average. The number of students for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional funding provided by the government for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, looked after children and children of service families) is well below average.

The school does have a small number of students who are looked after but no students from service families. The proportion of disabled students and those with special educational needs supported through school action is well below average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is very low.

No student on roll at the school is involved in education off site at any other educational institution. The school is supported by its proprietor, the Worshipful Company of Coopers. It holds a number of awards, including specialist college status for sports, humanities and training, International Schools Award, YST Gold Award, Gold National Association for Able Children in Education and Artsmark.
