About Harris Aspire Academy
Harris Aspire Academy is the hub for an alternative education provision, providing a personalised learning programme for its students, delivered by highly trained staff who inspire, motivate and re-engage them. Aspire gives students a second chance to achieve to their full potential. All students who are referred to Harris Aspire require that extra ‘something’ to support and arm them with strategies to improve the outcome of their lives.
Aspire Academy works closely with parents and carers, communicating daily and offering them an insight, through observation and participation, to how their child will learn. They are given an opportunity to support their child in a structured environment on a weekly basis, which will help them to turn their lives around by achieving their goals/targets set.
Harris Aspire was inspected for the first time by Ofsted in 2016, when it was rated Good with Outstanding features.
The Harris Aspire Academy ethos builds Resilience, Reflectiveness, Resourcefulness and Reciprocity in its students, ensuring they have great communication skills alongside an enterprising “can-do” attitude to being successful in life.
