What we offer?
We follow a programme that ensures great deal of experience in the first few years of secondary education and leads students smoothly towards the A Level years. We promote and value moral, mental, cultural, spiritual and physical development of each child and because we specialise in subjects at A level, which is valued by most of the universities, our students are accepted for the best colleges and universities worldwide.
As a guide, in recent years, nearly 90% of Year 13 obtained places at their first choice university, 70% of which were Russell Group and 10% Oxbridge, UCL or Warwick i.e. World top ten universities.
Lessons are carried out and planned from Monday to Friday only. Any other extra activities take place during the day or in the evenings, as well as at weekends. Some sport happenings and trainings take place during the weekends and students who are members of school teams are expected to be present.
The co-curriculum is an essential characteristic of Ashford School and makes us more visible among other boarding schools. We consciously use the term co-curriculum and not extra-curriculum because it is not something that is “an extra” for students or teachers. It is aimed to develop all of those crucial and hard to measure personal qualities such as teamwork, perseverance, self-discipline, empathy and leadership.
Together with the study of specific subjects, all students, throughout their time in the school, must be in-volved into some co-curricular activities which includes physical activity. This removes the feeling of many teenagers who simply worry or are even scared about what their friends are doing; at Ashford School eve-ryone has the freedom to pursue their dreams and passions and to face new experiences.
Music, competitive team sport, drama; the activities which we can offer are changing from term to term and most students must make a difficult choice out of the 80+ options.
Expert learning support teachers and classroom assistants are available to work with individual students as needed; parents are closely involved in supporting their child.
