The Academy is a two form entry newly established primary school in a brand new building in the heart of the community in Ashton.  It is a targeted basic need school where the need was established by the local authority to manage an increase in pupil numbers and we worked with the local authority in the development and set up of the school.  The Academy opened in September 2015 and in September 2019 it will have pupils across Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4.

The Academy is developing very successfully with a thriving pupil, staff, and parents community.  The academy has a very active Twitter account so please visit this to find out about all of the exciting things that are happening at Inspire.

Mission – it is the academy’s mission to provide an educational journey and experience that is second to none, to be a beacon in their communities and to leave their children and families with the lasting impact of a fulfilled potential and a lifelong love of learning.  In providing excellent educational services they aim to become the school of choice in their local area and provide a place where children can thrive educationally and personally day after day.

Vision – they believe in aspiration for all.  This means nurturing, supporting and developing every aspect of every single child in their care.  They want to create a world where the sky is the limit for all of their pupils; building pathways for all and focusing on personal and academic success and eventually progress to successful employment.
