Aspire Academy is a Primary and Secondary Alternative Provision, covering Harlow and areas of West Essex, with up to 103 pupils ranging from 4 to 16 years. Since opening in 2014, we have grown from a collection of pre-fab buildings to a purpose-built site with facilities for all ages, including playing fields, sports court, dining hall and our soon-to-be completed primary playground. Our learners come from a variety of backgrounds but are all welcomed into the Aspire family, where they are given their uniforms, meals and unconditional support. Our Primary pupils learn through cross-curricular, themed topics such as Dinosaurs, the Circus and Robin Hood. In Secondary, learners study up to 6 GCSEs from a choice of 8 subjects, as well as vocational options offered by alternative providers. We joined the TBAP Trust in December 2017 and are looking forward to embracing the opportunities that this will bring.
We have a highly trained and experienced team who work effectively to provide a personalised curriculum which meets the needs of all our learners. Staff support learners in all aspects of their school life and help them to make strong progress. Staff are dedicated to improving life chances and developing a ‘love for learning’ for all.
