At the heart of The Ashley School Academy Trust are our pupils themselves. We treat all our pupils as individuals with unique circumstance and needs. We work flexibly to ensure that all our pupils make good progress.
The Ashley School Academy Trust has an embedded commitment to working with families, children and other agencies helping sustain the learning, development and wellbeing of pupils facing challenging individual circumstances.
Our staff team is made up of teachers, specialist support staff, administrators, ICT and premises staff. The staff’s enthusiasm is permeated throughout and is reflected well by our pupils who show great commitment in pursuing their educational and extracurricular activities.
