Beaufort Co-operative Academy (formerly Beaufort Community School) is a mixed-gender secondary school and sixth form with academy status located in Tuffley, Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England. The number of pupils currently attending is approximately 1,200. Principal David Bishop joined Beaufort in 2012, during the new academic year, taking over from Malcolm Bride. After only a year of being principal, Bishop has made significant changes to the school. Changes include a new uniform and a fence around the school. Twenty-four teachers left the school in 2013.
The school converted to academy status on 1 October 2013, as part of Co-operative Academies Trust. The new school motto is now "Our", as opposed to "Caritas et Veritas".
