This summer sees Ashton Park students celebrating their exam results and successes. Students across the range secured the results they required to confidently move forward.
As always there were a great number of individual successes that were met with excitement and pride. Headteacher, Nick John acknowledged the hard work of staff and students as well as the support of parents and community in bringing in the results with 50% returning 4+ including English and Maths.
“Ashton Park is a special place, a community where everyone pulls together to support our young people. As a school, we are blessed committed staff who genuinely care about the students they teach, buoyed by parents and carers who support us every step of the way. As a community, we celebrate all our students’ achievements together with pride and wish them all well as they move on to apprenticeships, college and Sixth Form study.”
Year 11 Mock Exams will be held between the 12th and 16th March 2018

This year we are launching a new service to make Parents’ Evenings easier to deal with. The Parents’ Evening Booking system is a website which helps schools save money and time by allowing parents to make their own bookings. You can make bookings online via the Parents’ Evening Booking system website, on your computer, smartphone or tablet, alleviating almost all of the time dedicated to parents’ evenings by teachers and staff at the school. We can of course help parents who do not have internet access and you can still book appointments by contacting the school or asking your child to visit the IT Support Office to make appointments.
Whilst you may have received a username and login for the system you may not be able to book an appointment for your child until bookings for a Parents’ Evening have been released. Bookings will open for each Parents’ Evening around two weeks before the evening of the parents evening.
To provide further help in logging on or how to use the system the following videos may be of use.
Year 11 Mock Exams will be held between the 6th and 10th November 2017
