Latest News With Aspire AP School 2

Fundraiser by James Lawlor

Weʼre raising £1,000 to provide places in AP for struggling students. We inspire young people to thrive in education with bespoke, expert support.

Making a Difference: Just in Time

After teaching in mainstream education for 12 years, I knew that the system was not working for some of the most desperate young people. Frustrated by the lack of opportunity to address my students' social and emotional needs, I made the move to Alternative Provision.

Aspire AP Schools, our vision is to provide an engaging academic environment for young people at a crisis point in their education to access the help they need. We equip students with the metacognitive and emotional tools to succeed in education and beyond. Ofsted agree that we are a GOOD provision for students aged 11-16.

Our values are Providing Support, Creating Opportunities, Enabling Achievement and Building Resilience, so that every young person can be empowered to achieve their best. As a charity we are not directly funded by the government, but rely on raising funds in other ways. Be assured that all donations will be given to the Governing Body: Ecclesia International (Charity no: 1148134)
