Welcome back to a new school year at Lipson Co-operative Academy. It has been lovely to see all our students’ staff and governors new and old return this week and to hear about their summer adventures.

We started this term celebrating the success of both our GCSE and A level students’ who enjoyed success at their GCSE and level 3 qualifications.  We wave a fond farewell to our year 13 students who have left us to join degree courses at some of the top universities across the country and on some of the top level apprenticeship courses. We look forward to hearing how they get on.

After celebrating their GCSE results in the summer, we inducted an overwhelming majority of last years’ year 11 back into sixth form to undertake the next phase of their education. All year groups have returned with great enthusiasm and determination to tackle the year ahead.

We welcomed 183 new year 7 students who joined us on Tuesday- all ready to start their Lipson journey. They have made a great start and are already engaging in the opportunities we offer here. The joy and enthusiasm from the students was infectious and what a great start they have made to their career at Lipson.

As always, the start of a new school year is pretty busy and we look forward to meeting new and existing parents at some key events over these next few weeks. Our open evening for new parents and students is on Monday 11th September and this is a great opportunity for families to come and tour the school and meet staff and students so they are informed regarding the transition to Lipson Co-operative Academy as their school of choice.
