Ashmole is a high performing 11-19 mixed school that seeks to provide the highest quality of education and the highest standard of academic success for its students. We have around 1570 students on roll and a Sixth Form of around 325 students. We place emphasis on all areas of the curriculum being highly successful. However, within that, we seek to stress extracurricular Music and at the Sixth Form level, Science and Maths as particular aspects of the schools provision.
At Ashmole Academy, young people are valued. We regard academic success as vital and work very hard to ensure that all students fulfil their true potential. We have very high expectations from all our students. Ashmole Academy is also a caring school. We create an environment of tolerance and respect where aspirations and responsibilities of individuals are emphasised. We expect students to show care and respect for others.
Close co-operation between the home and school is essential if our young people are to gain the maximum benefit from their schooling. The school’s strong pastoral support system enables us to develop effective home-school relationships that are beneficial to the student concerned.
Education is about preparing young people for their future. Our students leave school to go to university, college or to start a career in their chosen field of employment. To assist in the preparation for that future, the school has an extensive Sixth Form provision covering a wide range of courses, career facilities and a well proven system for helping our young people with their university applications. We also have a dedicated gifted and talented team to ensure that aspirational Oxbridge students or those wishing to pursue a career in medicine for example, are highly successful in their ambition.
Ashmole is a forward looking school, keen to strive for further improvements in the quality of education we provide. We recognise that the quality of facilities can help students excel. We therefore have the very best in terms of accommodation and resources providing superb opportunities for the students to increase their enjoyment of school life, as well as having the latest teaching opportunities. In 2014, the new Sixth Form Centre, with a Starbucks Café, a social learning area and a high tech study centre suitable for e-learning was opened.
