Inspire Primary Academy is one of the first schools sponsored by Carillion Academies Trust, and provides places for 420 children. The school is part of the redevelopment of the former Stamford High School in Ashton which has also been master planned by FaulknerBrowns.

The master plan included residential development to help fund the school and required detailed negotiations with the local planning and highways officers, and Sport England to justify the loss of playing fields.

The design creates a central hall block which is flanked by two learning blocks for Foundation / Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 respectively, providing identity and ownership for each cohort of children and delineating public and private external spaces to the front and rear of the school.
