Ashfold serves the local community through the provision of excellent education to children from the surrounding towns and villages. This includes children who are supported financially through our bursary and scholarship places.
Our 16th Century mansion, Dorton House, and the surrounding estate are used by the local community in a variety of ways. For example, our leisure facilities including the swimming pool and tennis courts are made widely available to the residents of Dorton throughout the summer months. Other facilities are used by local groups for sports camps, fixtures and a local literary festival. The local authority enjoys access to the school facilities as a polling station and the Fire Service practice on our premises. We regularly host weddings and charity events in our grounds and in Dorton House.
Each year our children undertake many charitable fundraising activities for organisations both at home and abroad. They perform regular concerts at our local care home and in our local churches and we contribute annually to the upkeep of St John the Baptist Church in Dorton.
