As a charitable company, the Inspiration Trust prepares and publishes its accounts each year. Our financial year matches the academic year, running from September through to August.
The majority of our funding comes direct from Government, based on the number of students in our schools; academies receive approximately the same per-pupil funding as local authority schools. We also generate some income from hiring out facilities outside of school time. We are grateful for donations and grants from supporters.
We follow the Department for Education's Academies Financial Handbook to ensure that the public money we are entrusted with is spent as fairly and efficiently as possible, and to the maximum benefit of our students.
We also have regard to the Charity Commission's guidance on good practice for charities.
