Headmaster's Welcome

Colin with leavers 4 x 4At Ashfold, we offer our children an education that is full of challenges, full of opportunities and full of fun. An Ashfold education prepares our children for whatever life throws at them now, as well as for the hurdles that they’ll face in the years ahead. This is a place where lessons learned outside the classroom in forest school, on the sports pitch, going on trips, performing in plays and concerts, are often just as important as the lessons learned inside the classroom.

We aim to give our children the firmest possible grounding in the core academic subjects, but also look to develop their wider interests through the breadth of our curriculum. We take full advantage of our grounds, playing fields and woods, ensuring that the children spend lots of time outside every day. Our activities programme gives the children opportunities to develop their skills, to find a new talent or simply to have fun with their friends doing something different.

Pastoral care is at the heart of everything that we do. We pride ourselves on our sense of community and make sure that all children and their families are made to feel really welcome.

I would be delighted to meet you in person to show you round our school and, more importantly, to introduce you to some of our children. We are very proud of the special atmosphere that we have created here and would love for you to be able to experience this for yourself.
