E-Spired Centre of Excellence is an Independent School and Alternative Provision working with 14-18 year olds who have become disengaged with education.
The overall aim of E-Spired is to provide young people with the support, care and resources to commit to hard work in order to fulfil their potential. We do this by providing a holistic approach to engaging with young people through education, an inspiring motivational programme, work experience placement and mentoring. Our culture is therapeutic.
Our black thread motto is “Reversing the Trend”. The ethos behind our motto is reversing labels that have become self-fulfilling prophecies impacting on self-image and self-esteem and which presents barriers to learning. E-Spired is not just a school, but is a change programme and our theory of change is that a holistic, person-centred, therapeutic approach to engaging young people changes self-destructive negative attitudes and behaviours. We believe an approach which does not simply address the symptoms of disengagement, or lack of purpose, but draws alongside young people to engage, equip and empower will bring about positive change in their lives.
E-Spired opened its doors in October 2016 as a part-time alternative provision, offering support to young people who were at risk of exclusion from school or those who had already been excluded. Those young people committed to hard work, being willing to take responsibilities for their own behaviours, attitudes and actions. We are proud of the efforts that our young people made during that academic year, some moving on to engage with a college education.
Following a successful year, we applied to the DfE in the Summer of 2017 and became an Independent School and are proud to announce that during our first academic year 2017/18 as a school, Ofsted rated E-Spired as a GOOD school across all the Independent School Standards; visit our website to see the full report.
