Ashcroft High



We are delighted as of October 2013 that Ofsted inspectors rated Ashcroft High School officially a GOOD school.

A short inspection in January 2018 reconfirmed this.

Inspectors were particularly impressed with the following areas, highlighting them as strengths and offering comments of praise:

  • Leadership

“You provide highly effective, visionary leadership that is rooted in a passion for every pupil to achieve their very best.”

  • School ethos

“The ethos you promote is based on the school being ‘one large family’, having high aspirations for all pupils.”

  • School values

“Pupils show maturity around the school and have an in-depth understanding of the school’s aims to be ‘respectful, responsible and resilient’ in their day-to-day school life.”

  • Achievement and progress

“Pupils achieve well at Ashcroft High School because of your ambition to make sure that they all make good progress.”

  • Governors

“Governors offer a good level of challenge to school leaders, check progress with school plans carefully and are very actively involved in the life of the school.”
