SEND at Aspire

The overwhelming majority of our students have special educational needs or disabilities.

At Aspire, our aim to "build strong foundations and open new doors" applies to children with SEND in exactly the same way as those without. We ask "what is best for this child?" and "how can we make that happen?"
