Headteacher’s Message

The Headteacher provides outstanding leadership through high expectations for achievement and behaviour, a clear vision for school development and highly effective arrangements for developing teaching

As Ashcroft High School’s Headteacher I am fortunate to be part of the Ashcroft Family, a community of committed and talented staff, students and governors.

In October 2013, the school was judged as a good, with “outstanding” leadership and management.

The whole of the school community is immensely proud of this achievement as it recognises the hard work of out staff and governors, the unique qualities of our students, and the support of their parents.

I am also proud of our new school building, which includes modern classrooms, a theatre, a cafe and youth community facilities. Our smart, new school uniform is a visual symbol of Ashcroft’s high standards.

I have very high expectations of myself, of staff, students, parents and governors. I am proud of the way in which we constantly work together as members of the Ashcroft family to improve our school. That is the “Ashcroft Way”.

The school continues to improve due to our shared determination to achieve excellence.

I would welcome the opportunity to show you why I am so proud to belong to the Ashcroft family, and encourage you to join us.

Ms. Austin

Female Genital Mutilation is a form of child abuse and as such is dealt with under the schools Safeguarding policy. The Headteacher and Governors expect Safeguarding to be everybody’s responsibility and expect all staff to adhere to and follow these policies.
