Welcome to Rochdale Pioneers Trust

The Rochdale Pioneers Trust is a co-operative venture set up to ensure that all young people across the borough of Rochdale have access to high quality education. The Trust began its work in September 2012 and is built on the ethos of the original co-operative principles and values. Its main purpose is to be a self-improving education system able to rigorously self-evaluate, and collectively support and challenge each other through a school-to-school improvement model involving other partners and the Local Authority.
