Emma Hardaker, Headteacher
It is a pleasure to welcome you to Co-op Academy Delius. I have had the privilege of being the Headteacher of this fantastic academy since September 2021. 20 years of working within special education has provided me with the commitment and drive to provide the highest quality of education, environment and experiences for the exceptional pupils who attend the academy. The highly skilled and dedicated staff team I work with at Co-op Academy Delius are passionate about supporting our pupils, and each other and we recognise the importance of working in partnership with parents and other professionals as well as enhancing our links in our local community and beyond.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to come into Delius and show the children what I do for work for Jobs Week. Every single session was amazing with excellent engagement in something different which surprised me to be honest. I'll take away lots of proud and fond memories from today. It was an absolute privilege to give something back to an amazing school with amazing staff and children so thank you again to every single person who continues to help my child and all the children for that matter, to develop daily.
Music in Delius School is flourishing and thoroughly integrated throughout the curriculum and daily school life. Students are given lots of opportunities to experience and explore music and instruments and it is evident how much confidence they gain from this in many areas of their lives. They obviously really enjoy their music and welcome opportunities to share their results. I look forward to seeing the Delius School performance at Music Spectacular
