Our academies

The Inspiration Trust family includes a diverse range of schools across Norfolk and Suffolk.

We provide education from nursery, through primary and secondary, and on to sixth form, with schools around Norwich, in Great Yarmouth, Thetford, Cromer, and Lowestoft.

Each academy is individual and responds to the needs of its local community to provide the best possible opportunity for its young people. We promote high academic standards, while ensuring protected time for the arts, sport, and other crucial opportunities for personal and emotional development.

Meet our students

We have lots of exceptional students with diverse qualities: brilliant academically, excellent musically, outstanding on the sports field, amazing ambassadors in their communities. We'd like you to meet some of them.

Lilly at Norwich Primary Academy





Lilly is one of our most inspiring young people. Moved by the plight of Syrian refugees, Lilly didn't just sit back - she got together with her family and hatched a plan to help.

With the support of Norwich Primary Academy to put together goodie bags and other support, Lilly travelled to refugee camps in Greece to help the relief effort first hand.

As well as her amazing charity work, Lilly is a promising musician and actor and enjoys taking part in acting classes at Norwich's Maddermarket Theatre.

Harley at Thetford Academy



When Harley joined Thetford Academy he was quiet and withdrawn, and found it difficult to get on with his studies.

But staff at the academy saw something special, and encouraged him to try a range of sports activities. WIth their help and Harley's own indefatigable determination he built up his peformance to become one of the best runners in the region, as well as branching out into American football and other sports.

Taking advantage of the academy's sports leadership programme he also gained confidence off the field and is now on the school's most well known and active students.

Kyle at The Hewett Academy, Norwich



While Kyle has great natural skill as a dancer, he is the first to give thanks for the support he has received from staff at The Hewett Academy, and the chance to use both its dedicated dance studio and theatre.

With the help of staff to hone his skills, Kyle has not only boosted his own peformance but organised and choreographed shows for fellow students, entertaining the local community and raising funds for charity.

Molly at Jane Austen College, Norwich



At first glance Molly might seem unassuming - but in reality she is a creative and community powerhouse.

She is a regular performer in Jane Austen's lunchtime music concerts, playing guitar and singing, and has been a leading light in the college's drama and musical productions.

When not performing or practising, Molly has led a number of fundraising initiatives at the college and taken part in its community work across Norwich.

Patrick at Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form, Norwich



As of the county's top performing sixth forms Sir Issac is used to high achievers, but Patrick is in a class of his own when it comes to karate.

Alongside his studies Patrick has risen to become one of the best martial arts performers of his age, ranked first in Europe and second in the world.

While his sport has taken him to competitions in Poland and Serbia, the staff and fellow students at Sir Isaac help keep him on track in his studies.
