Everything we do at Aspire Academies Trust is centred around the children, curriculum and community.

We are passionate about making a difference to the lives of our children, as a result of our exceptional educational provision.

We are privileged to have Bedmond Academy, Bovingdon Primary Academy, Broadfield Academy, Hammond Academy, Knutsford Primary Academy, The Grove Academy and The Training Centre by Aspire within our Trust. We are building a family of schools who are prepared to truly collaborate.and have the desire to question, change and innovate. We all share the ultimate goal of driving high educational standards through the provision of outstanding teaching, leadership and learning for all.

We want all our schools to be the best they can be and for each child to discover the skills and interests that lie within them and become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

We recognise the importance for academies to retain and promote their individual identity and we endorse earned autonomy across the Trust. Every school has its own context and challenges. This is why we encourage our member schools to lead and manage in a way that preserves their individual identity and responds to the specific needs of their children and community.

Our leaders focus on offering the children a broad and balanced curriculum, on pupil progress and attainment and regularly sharing knowledge, insight and experience. We ensure that there are plenty of opportunities for all staff to share best practice and resources, work in partnership with each other and attend shared INSET.

The combination of autonomy and collaboration across key areas of leadership and management, underpinned by shared vision, values and best practice, is what makes the Aspire Academies Trust unique.

Kind regards,

Vicky Parsey
