Five Spires Academy is a one form entry school located in beautiful Lichfield. The school opened as a new academy in September 2015 to meet the increasing demand for primary school places in the area.

Our school is a happy, thriving school that is proud to be part of our local community. We like to think of Five Spires as a family that embraces everyone in its community, from pupils and staff to governors, parents, and carers. As a school, we live and breathe our school motto: ‘Everyone Inspire, Everyone Aspire'.

The school has excellent facilities on offer, including: 4D Cinema and sensory room, the latest Promethean board technology, a cooking and DT kitchen area as well as a Multi-Use Games Arena (MUGA). We are extremely proud of our school and pupils.

Our bespoke, creative ‘mini-mission’ curriculum enriches children’s learning experiences and ensures that a love of learning is fostered in every child, in every classroom, every day. It is delivered through a wealth of relevant, real-life problem-solving opportunities where connections are made between subjects. Our lively curriculum is designed to be varied and engaging and as a result, children are absorbed in their learning, actively seeking ways to overcome any obstacles that they meet.

Five Spires pupils are resilient: they relish a challenge and use mistakes as further opportunities to learn. They are encouraged to become independent, autonomous, and confident learners who take every opportunity to be the best that they can be.

Every member of the Five Spires team believes passionately in the importance of learning in a caring and nurturing environment so that all children develop and achieve their best as valued members of the school family. We strive to ensure that every child fulfils their potential in all areas of school life and look forward to welcoming you into our happy school.
