Helpful information during the COVID-19 crisis


In response to the COVID-19 situation Aspire Academy is adhering to guidance from the Department for Education. As a result, the academy is running on a very limited number of staff to support the students accessing the provision. This means that the school office is now closed.

Free School Meal weekly packs continue to be available at the front of school from 12:00 – 2:00pm when school is open. Please ensure you follow social distancing expectations when collecting these.

For further advice on student work please visit the home learning guidance pages by clicking here or contact the subject email addresses that can be found on that page.

For any other enquiries please email admin@aspire.fcat.org.uk

We have also added a Code of conduct relating to the return to school after COVID-19 lockdown school closure document to our policies which you can read by clicking here.
