Each Aspirations Academy aims to develop a curriculum which achieves the Trust’s vision:

“Our vision is for an authentic education for the 21st century for children from the age of 2 to 18. We want all students to achieve high levels of success in a broad range of examinations at a variety of ages, whilst at the same time equipping them with the knowledge and skills required to play an active and successful role in today’s highly competitive, fast-changing world.”

The curriculum of each academy also aims to reflect the local community and the particular needs of its students, however, the curriculum structure and aims are driven by:

  • The Early Years curriculum requirements, and the National Curriculum in Key Stages 1, 2, 3
    and 4.
  • Trust wide KS2and KS3 curriculum development, the ‘No Limits: Education for success in
    the 21st century’,
  • The EBacc academic programme at KS4
  • The Aspirations Employability Diploma at Post 16 level

This curriculum outline, developed in each academy, reflects the knowledge and skills, and the local social and employment context, that pupils need in order to take advantage of opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. The curriculum will help to powerfully address social disadvantage.
