The COA team

The majority of our staff are based at the head office in Horsham St Faith, just outside Norwich. From here we ensure COA runs smoothly and provides the best possible service to our schools, colleges and other customers in the UK and overseas.

We also have a Schools' Liaison Team to keep in touch with existing schools, visit new ones, arrange regional meetings, attend pupil or parent events, and talk on subjects such as the aptitude tests, sixth form subject selection, work experience, and GAP year activities. They also play a full part in the interviewing team.
