Aspire is a vibrant, highly successful and widely recognised Trust determined to raise standards of educational achievement to the very highest levels. We don’t just aim for our children to achieve what is average or expected, but for them to excel both academically and in character.
We live in a global economy that requires our children to be prepared to think both critically and creatively, solve complex problems, and to communicate well. Mastery of the basics: reading, writing, maths and technology is our core purpose, and this sits firmly alongside ensuring our children have well-developed social and emotional skills. Aspire academies have a strong emphasis on the sport, arts and social, moral spiritual and cultural education.
Our 36 schools/academies and 23 nurseries are all an integral part of their local communities and have a real sense of identity. We value the contribution each of our communities makes and the distinctive opportunities and diversity it offers to the trust. By working in true partnership, we offer exceptional learning experiences to all our children, so they benefit from the strength that being part of the extended Aspire family brings.

I look forward to hopefully welcoming you to the Aspire family!

Getting learning off to a flying start.
Aspire Nurseries, led by qualified and knowledgeable staff, lay firm foundations for children in their early years. A qualified teacher from each school oversees the curriculum, learning environments and learning outcomes in conjunction with the Nursery Lead. Staff strive to ensure all children have an equal chance of success, informed by knowledge of what can be achieved.
Our nurseries, the children, families, our dedicated teams and the local community, are an integral part of the Aspire Academy Trust. We recognise the need for high quality early education where children flourish through the love and care given by all of our practitioners.
We know the importance for our nurseries to have strong and respectful partnerships with parents so every child can develop during their early years and that everyone plays an active role in ensuring this is successful.
Our number one goal is to ensure all children, within our family of Nurseries, grow stronger and achieve through high-quality early education and the care that we are able to offer.

Vision & Values
All that we do at St Uny is underpinned by our Christian vision and values.
The Bible verse "Let your light shine before others", Matthew 5:16 inspires our holistic approach to education, where we help every pupil to find, develop and show their varied skills and talents, for the benefit of themselves and others.
The school community worked together to select our three whole-school Christian values. They are: Forgiveness, Friendship and Respect Each value has an accompanying Bible story to help us to consider the message of each value.
The parents have chosen: Forgiveness – Jonah and the Whale (The Book of Jonah) The pupils have chosen: Friendship – The Parable of the Lost Sheep (Luke 15) The staff have chosen: Respect – Noah’s Ark (Genesis 5)
