Aspire Learning Trust
Our school is a Foundation School and has acquired Trust status from 1st November 2014. Trust schools remain part of the local authority system, but are supported by a charitable trust which has appointed some of the governors. The Governing Body will continue to run the school and be responsible for its performance.
We are extremely proud of the progress that our school has made in recent years and we wish to make it even better. We believe that we would have a greater capacity to do so by working more collaboratively with partners. The Trust will enable the school to benefit from the skills of our partners, and other stakeholders, to deliver enhanced learning opportunities. By acquiring a mutual co-operative trust, supported by a range of partners and stakeholders who are united in our vision, we hope to not only transform the life chances of every student that passes through our school, but to have lasting positive impact on the wider community as well. We aim to provide the best education for all students in our area by working together to ensure that every child within the Aspire Learning Partnership will attend an aspirational school that holds the highest expectations of learning outcomes for all.
Aspire Learning Partnership Schools
The schools who form part of the trust are Bankfields Primary School, Grangetown Primary School, Overfields Primary School, South Bank Primary School, Teesville Primary School, Whale Hill Primary School and Wilton Primary School.
Aspire Learning Partnership Vision
The Trust’s vision will be that every child within the Aspire Learning Partnership will attend an aspirational school that holds the highest expectations of learning outcomes for all. Each of the eight schools is committed to the shared responsibility for improving the life chances for all members of the schools’ communities, regardless of any barriers to learning.
How will the Trust make a difference?
