Children and young people are at the centre of everything we do. Throughout the Federation there is an unshakeable belief that every learner has the potential to succeed and achieve academically, creatively, socially and personally.  We are focused on raising aspirations and creating opportunities for everyone in the Federation.

I am very proud to welcome you to The Aspire Federation website. We are an inclusive family of schools that put the children and young people at the centre of everything we do. I am honoured to lead the schools and the teams that are committed to providing the best education possible for all the children and young people in our community. I am committed to this culture of high expectations and support.

As a Federation we have numerous examples of learners excelling and achieving beyond their wildest dreams, resulting in changing their own and in many cases their families lives. ‘Aiming High, Reaching All’ permeates throughout the school community, resulting in everyone thriving, fulfilling their potential and achieving highly. This ‘can do’ attitude takes everyone to expectations and beyond.  The Federation is bursting with energy, where all staff push learners to achieve beyond the limits of what previously might have been thought possible.
