Our Teachers

Joanna Mortimer - 'Miss Jo'

Inspire Founder and Principal


I'm so proud of our achievments at Inspire. We've gone from having only a handful of children to over 300 fantastic students.


Seeing our pupils return each term and watching them progress is the most special part of my job, and what drives me to continue expanding. My favourite part about Inspire is the shows - showing off the exceptional talent of our students, and seeing their reactions to performing in front of a huge crowd is priceless.
