Ashmole Academy is a unique school that remains committed to delivering it’s motto; Excellence, Aspiration and Care for both its staff and students. Our conscientious, determined and expert staff are highly committed to delivering high standards of teaching and learning by supporting each and every one of our students to maximise their potential. All students are set high aspirations and are empowered to achieve these by demonstrating the school values. These are Endeavour, Reflection, Professionalism, Responsibility, Respect and Co-operation. They show the emphasis we place on Achievement, Behaviour and Community, collectively known as the ‘ABC of Excellence’.
Our A Level and GCSE examination results are exceptional, at GCSE we consistently and significantly outperform in all four key performance indicators, both locally and nationally. The Progress 8 score remains approximately close to 1, indicating that on average our students achieve one grade higher than expected across 8 qualifications, to include English, Maths and English Baccalaureate qualifications compared to students nationally.
Although we are a large secondary school with over 1800 students, we make every effort to appreciate each students’ talents and personalities. The role of the pastoral team and in particular the form tutor is key to ensure that each and every one of students feels supported and cared for.
The school building was built in 2004, and we continue to invest in the buildings and facilities in order to provide a fantastic learning environment. We offer a broad range of extra-curricular activities and we are proud of our numerous sports teams who continue to win regional titles.
I am extremely honoured to be the Head Teacher of Ashmole Academy, and appreciate the commitment of all the staff to provide our students an inspired educational experience.
