A warm welcome to Ashfold. I hope you enjoy exploring our website and discovering what makes our school such a special place in which to live and work, learn and grow.
One of the most uplifting aspects of my job is talking to prospective parents after their tour of the School because invariably they begin by telling me what a wonderful atmosphere we have created here. This is of course hard to put across in a website because it is a 'feeling' gained by witnessing how children and staff relate to one another.
Just as with families, at Ashfold the quality of relationships is of central importance to the happiness and success of children. If they look forward to coming to school each morning, if they believe that their teachers really care for them and are interested in helping them to learn, and if they know that at break times wherever they go they will find others who will play with them, then children will gain confidence, learn and make spectacular progress.
As you would expect from any great school, Ashfold has a challenging and broad curriculum, its children are well-mannered, learning is fun and it has great and ever-improving facilities, but it is its atmosphere that makes it the very special place that it is today.
Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, and in making it, we are confident that you will be as ambitious for your children as we are for them. We cannot paint the whole picture of what Ashfold could offer your children here, so do please come and see us to allow us to share with you this very special place and its people, and to find out why we are all so tremendously proud of our school.
