Ashcroft High

Headteacher's Welcome


Welcome to Ashcroft High School where our vision is to ignite each individual's passion for learning, creating inspirational leaders and aspirational learners.

How will we achieve this? By having high expectations of students and staff, by continually raising aspirations and by promoting self-belief and confidence that they can reach their desired destination.

For students, whether that be in further education or within business and industry, we provide a wide range of educational experiences to ensure they achieve academically, develop personally and are fully prepared. Our curriculum is ambitious, varied and relevant, with a great emphasis upon the core subjects, sitting alongside a promotion and love of sport, the arts and creativity. Our enrichment opportunities allow students to discover new skills and talents as well as deepen and master existing ones. Whilst our careers programme provides the guidance and exposure to external professionals, giving students a range of perspectives on the different careers available to them.

We pride ourselves on creating a culture where everybody is shown and receives respect, takes responsibility for their actions, and develops the resilience to be able to adapt in the face of challenging circumstances. These values we promote must be enduring and provide the foundations for individual and collective success. 

We are so proud of our students’ academic progress, sporting achievements, musical performances, drama productions and onward destinations. I encourage you to visit us, meet our dedicated staff and enthusiastic students, and learn more about our ambitions for the future.
