Coopers School is a mixed secondary school with academy status located in the suburb of Chislehurst in the London Borough of Bromley. The school specialises in technology, and the current Headteacher is Sue Wood.
The school shares a site with the community special school Marjorie McClure. The site is on land between Chislehurst Common and the National Trust's Hawkwood Estate, an area of working farmland and woodland, and is above the Chislehurst Caves.
The school was first established in 1939 as the Sidcup Day Commercial School, with headmistress Miss Scorrer. After World War II, in 1946, a second site linked to the Sidcup school was established at Hawkwood Lane, Chislehurst. The new school eventually became known as the Chislehurst and Sidcup Technical High School for Girls and in 1949 Mary Anderson was appointed head teacher.
By 1969 the Chislehurst site had been further developed, with several new buildings, and two schools split. The Chislehurst school became Coopers School, named after the Coopers Mansion House which stood on the site. The house is still standing, and has recently been refurbished to become the school's sixth form centre. In 1969 later the school accepted its first intake of 37 boys.
In 1981 the school became an all-ability comprehensive school. The school became a specialist Technology College in 2002, and was renamed Coopers Technology College. In February 2012 the school converted to an academy. It subsequently renamed itself Coopers School.
The school won a national award for ICT in 2006, for using computers to improve the way in which it is run. The school's website allows extensive interactive access to school information by staff, students, parents and governors through its learning gateway.
