What the school says...

The business of learning is what goes on at The Co-operative Academy of Manchester in Blackley. We are a comprehensive secondary school for girls and boys in a fantastic new building. We are supported by our sponsors - The Co-operative Group, Manchester City Council and The Manchester College.

We have a wide curriculum covering the main areas like English, Maths and Science alongside opportunities to study a range of subjects - including hairdressing in our own salon.

In 2013 we achieved fantastic GCSE results making us 'the most improved school in Manchester'. Our attendance statistics are some of the highest in the city and Ofsted rated our Quality of Teaching, the Behaviour and Safety of Pupils and our Leadership & Management all as "Good".

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
