Vanessa Bragg, CEO
Welcome to the Aspire Academy Trust.
Aspire is a vibrant, highly successful and widely recognised trust determined to raise standards of educational achievement to the very highest levels. We don’t just aim for our children to achieve what is average or expected, but for them to excel both academically and in character.
We live in a global economy that requires our children to be prepared to think both critically and creatively, solve complex problems, and to communicate well. Mastery of the basics: reading, writing, maths and technology is our core purpose and this sits firmly alongside ensuring our children have well-developed social and emotional skills. Aspire academies have a strong emphasis on the sport, arts and social, moral spiritual and cultural education.
All of our schools and academies are an integral part of their local communities and have a real sense of identity. We value the contribution each of our communities make and the distinctive opportunities and diversity it offers to the trust. By working in true partnership as a trust, we offer exceptional learning experiences to all of our children, so they benefit from the strength that being part of the extended Aspire family brings.
