The Aspirations Profile

This is central to everything we do in Aspirations Academies. The research undertaken by Dr. Russell J. Quaglia and the Quaglia Institute over the past thirty years has revealed a real need to embed the three Guiding Principles and the 8 Conditions that Make a Difference into everything our academies do. We provide a great amount of training and support for leaders, teachers, pupils, governors and parents to help them understand aspirations and how to develop them fully.

The ultimate aim is to build pupil’s aspirations. Aspirations is

‘The ability to dream about the future, while being inspired in the present to reach those dreams’.

If we can get children and staff to have big dreams, but to understand that they need to work hard in the present to achieve them, then they will have high aspirations.
