Schools Co-operative Society

The Co-operative College has overseen the development of a new co-operative organisation which is registered as a society for the Benefit of the Community – generally known as a Bencom.

The Schools Co-operative Society is a national network of co-operative schools managed by Trust schools together with the Co-operative Business and Enterprise Colleges and co-operative Academies. The Co-operative College supports the network, but it operates as an independent co-operative.

Each co-operative school is invited to join and nominate a suitable representative to meet with other co-operative schools to develop the network. The Schools Co-operative Society acts as a support network, enabling both existing and prospective co-operative schools to share ideas and best practice and develop services for member schools.
