Our Trustees and Members

Aspire Academies Trust is responsible for the overall strategic management of the Trust. 

All the Trustees take great pride in providing capable oversight and guidance across all areas of Aspire Academies Trust. Together we ensure all of our academies provide a safe and enriching environment in which every child can learn, grow and develop to reach their full potential. We also strive to offer a rewarding setting for all our staff to ensure we attract and retain the best people in their profession.

It is our aim to build a financially strong trust and support our Academies by providing the resources and assistance they require to succeed. We actively encourage individuality within each Academy to reflect the diversity and character of the local community.       

We're a Trust for the future, so put your trust in us.
