Inspire Partnership

The Inspire Partnership is an academy trust of 9 schools serving diverse communities in Croydon, Greenwich and Medway. We were formed in 2017 with the ambition to transform the lives of children through partnership and collaboration. 

We believe passionately in giving every child the best possible start in life and are committed to providing rich learning experiences that ensure our young people thrive. Through our global curriculum, pupils have opportunities to learn the importance of community linked to key global themes such as sustainable development, diversity and leadership. We teach children the key knowledge and vocabulary required to succeed across the national curriculum and are proud of the impact this has in our schools.

We pride ourselves on delivering high quality and practitioner led professional development. We give our staff the best opportunities to learn and grow as professionals. The Partnership delivers a range of development programmes aimed at every level of school life. This professional support helps create the next generation of leaders and ensures we are continuously striving to improve from an evidence informed position.

Trust governance is led by our Trust Board who meet regularly and know our schools well. This work is supported strongly by local governing bodies who provide the local support and challenge for each of our schools. As we have grown, so too have we strengthened communication and support for governance across the Partnership with governor training programmes, network meetings and opportunities for governors to share best practice between our schools.

If you wish to find out more about the Partnership, we would love to hear from you.  You can arrange to visit any of our schools or can find more information at

Best wishes,
