Aspire Academy Trust

St Mawes School joined The Aspire Academy Trust in January 2017. The Trust comprises of a group of Cornish Primary Schools working together in a unique and exciting partnership that will ensure better provision, richer resources, and higher standards for our pupils.

The Trust is focused on continuous school improvement and removing any obstacles that distract from this goal. By employing experts in buildings, finance, compliance, personnel, IT and health and safety, we seek to remove the bureaucratic and compliance related duties away from our school leaders and teaching staff – freeing them to focus on improving opportunities for pupils.  

Pupils from the different school spend time with each other, staff share good practice and school leaders work with each other in ways they have never done before.

The goal of the Trust is for each academy not just to be or become outstanding but to sustain it always. With this brave and exciting move, St Mawes has wholeheartedly embraced this principle and is already enjoying and gaining from working with other schools in the trust.
