Janet Cassford

Welcome to our website. The Aspire Virtual School provides educational support to young people who are looked after by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, from reception to Year 13 (and beyond).

We are responsible for raising their educational standards by ensuring that each young person’s progress at school remains a priority and that they receive appropriate schooling and guidance.
