Aspire in Top 10 poll position

CornwallLive has published a comprehensive 2018 guide on the performance of every primary school in Cornwall and it's great news for the Aspire Academy Trust!

The Real Schools Guide 2018, compiled by Trinity Mirror's data unit, aims to give a far more comprehensive picture than traditional league tables.  It takes into account 44 different data points such as progress, pupil-teacher ratios and absence rates, rather than just simply focussing on KS2 data.

Four of the top ten of Cornish primary schools are Aspire academies with Sandy Hill Academy placed 1st, Mawgan-in-Pydar Primary School in 2nd, Mount Hawke Academy in 9th and one of our newest Aspire members, Tintagel Primary School in 10th place. Amazing!

This wonderful news is a true reflection of the huge amount of work being done at every level. Other Aspire academies are champing at the heels of the Top 10 and more feature in the Top 20.

The Aspire Academy Trust is setting the pace and agenda for improvement, not just for all its pupils, but for education throughout Cornwall and nationally with Sandy Hill Academy now placed 88th out of 15,000 schools.
