Equality and Diversity
We aim to showcase the best and most inspirational talent and success stories from ethnic minority backgrounds to inspire and celebrate diversity. Therefore we expect all of our staff and students to CARE (Copley Against Racism and Extremism) and ensure everyone is not just non-racist but anti-racist to create a fairer school and wider community for all.
