Crucible Co-operative Learning Trust

On the 1st January 2016, our school along with Athelstan Primary and Brunswick Primary became founding partners of the Crucible Co-operative learning Trust.

The key aims of the Trust is working towards:

  • Building a strong sense of community where children and adults work together to help one another learn and improve.
  • Further develop our long term, sustainable relationships with partners – by using our combined experience and expertise to strengthen leadership and governance and raise standard.
  • Embeding co-operative values into the curriculum, life and ethos of our schools.


The Headteachers and Chair of Governors from each school meet regularly as a board of trustees to discuss ways that all three schools can work together to develop these aims and enrich and enhance learning opportunities across the trust.
