Headteacher's Welcome

Thank you for visiting our website, I hope you have a bit of time to explore and learn more about our wonderful academy.

The site contains a lot of information about the academy, but if you can’t find what you are looking for, please contact us.

At Co-op Academy Nightingale we provide our children with excellent learning opportunities so that they can all fulfil their potential
Nightingale is a vibrant, inclusive, and family orientated academy with a strong community ethos in the heart of Leeds. 

We believe that all pupils can achieve and be successful both academically and socially. We have the highest expectation of  pupils and staff and we thrive on pupil success and progress.  Individuals are valued and we support our children in becoming independent pupils who thrive on challenges and are motivated to learn. We deliver a broad range of exciting opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom as we prepare your child to become compassionate, hard working citizens. 

Our team of dedicated teachers, support staff, pastoral staff , site staff and governors work hard to ensure our academy is a welcoming environment  and we work together to embrace and demonstrate the Co-op Ways of being in everything we do and we share these values with other Co-op Academies across the country. 

  • Do what matters most

  • Be yourself, always

  • Show you care

  • Succeed together

We are a listening school so if you have ideas or suggestions about how we can do things better please let us know. You can phone, write, email, make an appointment or just have a chat when you see us. Your views are important to us.

We look forward to working in partnership with you and getting to know you and your children over the coming months and years.
