Welcome to Ashcroft High School

E-safety

At Ashcroft High School we take child online safety very seriously. As your child becomes more independent, it is only natural that they take this independence online. In our teenage years we explore, try new things and sometimes push boundaries and take risks; this is an essential part of growing up.

Our Vision, Values and Aims

At Ashcroft High School we value people and learning above all.

STATEMENT OF VISION AND VALUES

At Ashcroft High School we value people and learning above all.  Our work is guided by the belief that every child matters and has something unique to offer.  We believe that individuals achieve more in an environment that sets high standards and demands their personal best.  In a rapidly changing world we believe the values we promote must be enduring and provide the foundations for individual and collective success.

  • Benefit from high quality teaching and support
  • Develop independence and self-reliance
  • Have the ability to work positively with others, from a wide range of backgrounds
  • Be able to make moral choices based on a sense of right and wrong
  • Expect to achieve through hard work and application
  • Develop the ability to take on responsibility and lead others
