Ethnic Minority and CARE

Welcome to our Ethnic Minority section of the Copley Academy website. On this page we will be showcasing 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. 

As an inclusive and diverse academy we expect our students to take responsibility for any racial discrimination through CARE, which you can read below-

Issues around class, race, privilege, society and the inequalities they create are shown in this link below.

 Icon of October 2021-  Mary Seacole


Seacole applied to become a nurse to the British soldiers fighting in the Crimean War. She was rejected and so travelled and set up her own hospital behind the front lines. She used her knowledge of herbal and medicinal treatments to tend to the injured. In 2004 she was voted the ‘Greatest Black Briton’.
