In November 2022, Ashton Park School and Sixth Form was inspected by Ofsted and we are delighted that the inspectors judged Ashton Park School and Sixth Form to be a ‘Good School’.
The inspectors particularly recognised the work that staff have been doing on
developing all areas of the curriculum as well as providing exciting opportunities for our students to learn. As a team we are delighted that our hard work has been recognised. Inspectors said “Students are happy to attend Ashton Park School… and appreciate the ways in which they can develop their talents and interests. The many clubs, including sports, art, drama and music, are well attended”.
They praised that “Leaders have adjusted the curriculum in light of gaps that have arisen as a result of the pandemic. For example, food technology is more focused on practical elements and personal, social and health education (PSHE) has more curriculum time. This is in line with the school’s commitment to ensuring that pupils leave Ashton Park ready for their next stages in life.”
The school received a Good grade in every aspect of its work,
Overall effectiveness Good
The quality of education Good
Behaviour and attitudes Good
Personal development Good
Leadership and management Good
Sixth-form provision Good
We are very proud of each and every one of our students and the inspectors remarked
how “Students take pride in their work and are keen to do well” - a true reflection of our wonderful school values: Respect, Determination, and Community
As a school we are committed to continuing to improve our SEND provision within our Resource Base and in the whole school. We are further working to ensure that teaching learning helps students to recall what they already know so that they can build on prior knowledge.
