Mrs Burns   

Welcome from Mrs Burns, Executive Principal, Inspire Academy

I believe that our new Academy in Tameside is an establishment of outstanding provision and practice driven by a commitment to securing the best outcomes for all pupils who attend.

Every child is nurtured and supported with their personal talents, skills and areas for development being embraced and enhanced during their time at the Academy in order that they reach their full potential. The high quality teaching, fantastic facilities and high expectations of achievement at the Academy serve to encourage the highest of aspirations for our pupils who are keen to learn, fully engaged and enthusiastic to succeed.

I look forward to welcoming you and having the opportunity to share our vision and to form long lasting positive relationships with the families we serve.
