Executive Principal's Welcome

Aspire Academies TrustAt Aspire Academies Trust we are passionate about making a difference to the lives of our children. They are at the heart of everything we do and we strive to inspire learners and change their lives, as a result of our exceptional educational provision. We want all our schools to be the best they can be and for each child to discover the skills, abilities, talents and interests that lie within them.

We are privileged to have Bovingdon Primary Academy, Hammond Academy, The Grove Academy and the West Herts Teaching School Alliance presently within the Aspire Trust. We are building a family of schools who are prepared to truly collaborate. The schools have a desire to question, change and innovate to ensure that what they provide enables our children to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

We believe in the power of partnership, enabling us to ensuring more children receive an exceptional education.  Our member schools know the transformational impact it can have from experience. We all share the ultimate goal of driving high educational standards through the provision of outstanding teaching, leadership and learning for all.

At the same time, 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 share knowledge, insight and experience. We ensure that there is plenty of opportunity for all the staff to work in partnership, share best practice, share resources 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
