About Us & Our Academies

The Aspire Educational Trust was established in December 2013 by Ash Grove Academy in Macclesfield, Cheshire. Whilst striving for excellence in all of our academy schools we encourage them to flourish with real autonomy, whilst also ensuring a strong ethos of support and collaboration across our schools. We currently have 11 innovative schools spread across Cheshire and Manchester, delivering an authentic education for the 21st century.
