Welcome to Co-op Academy Swinton

Sadly, the restrictions in place because of the current pandemic mean we are unable to invite you in to school to attend our annual Open Evening.

We’re disappointed that we won’t get to meet you and your child.
We’re disappointed that you can’t experience the vibrance of our school in person.
We’re disappointed that you can’t meet some of our fabulous students.
And we’re disappointed that you can’t chat with the staff members so passionate about their subjects and what our school can offer your child.

We understand how difficult the prospect of choosing a secondary school is and we know making the right decision is vitally important.

We hope these videos, prospectus and faculty information help to give you a feel of our academy and the positive environment it is for learning, developing and achieving.

If you have any further enquiries, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please either call 0161 794 6215 or email us at: transition@swinton.coopacademies.co.uk

The closing date for secondary school applications is 31 October 2020. All applications for schools in Salford must be completed online. You can access the link here: www.salford.gov.uk/applyforschool
