Welcome from the Head

We are extremely proud of our school; Ashlyns is a school with character and a rich heritage where we inspire our students to be both successful and happy through a wide range of academic, vocational and extra-curricular activities.

At its heart, Ashlyns has a well-motivated and reflective staff and governing body with a shared purpose, and students who are warm, positive and engaging. The school blends traditional values of respect, trust, honesty and hard work with forward thinking teaching and innovation. Our aim is simply that we provide the best opportunities and support for every student to flourish and succeed. As the Headteacher, I want and expect the best from, and for, all students.

Our website will give you a brief insight into what the school has to offer for all students, parents and the local community as well as showcasing our various events and achievements. However, nothing can replace the real thing and we take pride in welcoming visitors to our school. Whatever the occasion, there is always something going on and visitors will always receive a warm welcome from staff and students alike, who will be keen to explain what makes Ashlyns so special.

Ashlyns is a thriving school. I am proud to be part of such a special place and feel privileged to be leading the school forward to a bright and successful future.
