All About Blackpool Aspire Academy

We are a sponsored academy located on Blackpool Old Road. The brand new building has a shared entrance with Highfurlong School and the new build opened its doors in November 2015. 

Blackpool Aspire Academy came into existence on Wednesday, 3rd September, 2014 and has never looked back. Mrs Lisa Shuttleworth-Brown, is our Academy Principal, who has an extensive career background in education and is passionate about young people achieving their best irrespective of social, economic, ethnic, or other backgrounds.

Here at Blackpool Aspire Academy we have certain expectations that both students and staff must uphold every day in order to achieve their potential - our key message is PAUSE!


Our sponsor is FCAT (the Fylde Coast Academy Trust) who provide real opportunities not only for our students, but our staff too, across the growing number of FCAT schools. High quality staff development, enrichment opportunities for our students, and incredible investment into our facilities is something we are confident will bring our young people a greater chance of success.
