Virtual Open Evening

Welcome to Co-op Academy Walkden’s Virtual Open Evening 

We are so pleased to welcome you to Co-op Academy Walkden from the comfort of your sofa!

We have put together a fantastic virtual tour of the Academy, showing you what we have to offer our students every day. We are thrilled that you signed up to be the first to see this!

As well as a sneak peek at the video, we hope that the information in this email will help you make the most informed decision about your child’s future.

Co-op Academy Walkden

Who we are

At Co-op Academy Walkden, we aim to give your child a first-class education. We want your child to achieve academic success and develop as a kind, caring, and rounded young person.

We have a rich, purposeful curriculum with literacy development at the core. Furthermore, we offer support for students with English as an Additional Language and SEND.

We have supportive Heads of Year and an excellent pastoral system. Our transition programme into Year 7 is fun and informative, and our students are given excellent careers guidance to help them transition beyond Walkden.

We are proud to be at the heart of our community, and we are proud to give back to our community. We have made a Co-op commitment, and we live our Co-op values every day.

Our community, at Co-op Academy Walkden, is built through our extra-curricular activities and our student leadership programmes. We also have a successful Combined Cadet Force unit. Giving back to the community has seen us lead community projects, such as our Christmas Hamper Scheme and our Community Coffee and Carols Evening.

Visit us before you apply

Although we cannot offer an open evening this year, we can offer a 1:1 tour with individual families. In order to keep you and your family safe, these tours would need to be booked in advance. We only have a limited number of spaces, due to COVID restrictions, and spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you wish to book at 1:1 tour around our Academy, before you submit your application, please register your interest here and a member of staff will be in touch with you.
