Co-operative Trust schools combine long term institutional partnerships with a membership structure that enables parents, learners, staff and community organisations to be directly involved in the Trust. Stakeholders drawn from these groups are elected to a Forum which holds the Trust to account, helps shape its priorities and elects a proportion of trustees.

The stake-holding model puts the community at the heart of education provision, based on the belief that it is only through the active engagement of communities that the aspirations and expectations of educational achievement can be transformed.

This page is currently under development and will soon contain an online membership form.
