A little snippet of what people say about The Aspire Project

"We are absolutely delighted with our 

new dividers and pod".

We are absolutely delighted with the work done by the Aspire Project.  From start to finish, Simon was great - fantastic communication and great advice on the best way the pods would suit our school.  He has created some vibrant, purposeful spaces which our pupils (and staff!) love working in.  All elements of our design were fulfilled including the specific font used and our school logo. The pods were designed and installed in time for the start of the school year with ease. We will definitely be looking to have some more pods installed in the future!

We constantly receive great feedback from the schools we work with, take a look for yourself…



The children, parents and staff are delighted with our new walls!  The whole school has been given a massive lift and it has really helped to create a bright, engaging and welcoming learning environment.  Simon and his team have done a terrific job and has worked so closely with us to create a bespoke design that is perfect for our school.

“The impact of The Aspire Project within Hamstel has been absolutely superb.  The carefully chosen photographs and quotes have lifted our 100 year-old corridors and transformed them into modern and inspirational spaces which the children, staff, parents and governors all enjoy.  The splendid learning pods have also been received with delight as they provide much needed privacy and space for a wide variety of  learning activities.  The whole project has injected a sense of fun, dramatic colour and personality into the school.  Thank you very much!”

Rupert Snow, Hamstel Junior School.

“Our learning pod has transformed the busy corridor into an effective area for learning.  The children and staff enjoy working in there and have asked for more pods to be built.”

Jenny Haken, Millhouse Junior School.


“Bright, stimulating and capturing the essence of our school. Everyone loves the quality of work and regularly comments on the quality of the pictures. The Aspire Project captures the values of our school in images that mean so much to the pupils, staff, parents and governors. Simon manages to capture the heart of the school in images that paint a thousand words.”

Luke Bulpett, Kingswood School, Basildon.


“The impact of the work of Simon and The Aspire Project has had a transformational effect on the learning environment at Grove Wood. This is far more than fantastic photography; the canvases, panels and collages portray pupils clearly modelling success and demonstrating our whole school values. Visitors regularly comment on the striking images which are able to say a huge amount about our school and ethos. In addition Simon has a clear vision and understanding of how effective learning environments can support pupils’ learning.”

“Having been impressed with their work at other schools, we contacted The Aspire Project to work with us.  Parents and the children themselves immediately responded very positively to the images displayed around the school, on our prospectus and on the school website.  Visitors to the school get a very clear and quick impression of the school’s ethos.  We look forward to working again with The Aspire Project in the future.”

“The Rainbow walls at Wyburns Primary make our school a better place to be. They’re child friendly and make the school colourful and unique. They are modern and help us to think imaginatively. We have plenty of places for our group activities now, although we all try to bag the Rainbow Room. They make us smile. We can’t wait to see what springs up next! Awesome, amazing, fabulous. They made our school extra special!”

Junior Governors (The Students), Wyburns Primary School.
