Ashfield School is a happy school, and we are very proud of our strong reputation for providing an excellent education for all of our students within our outstanding facilities. Our vision for the school is to support and challenge all learners to aspire to fulfil their potential – this is what we firmly believe in and strive to achieve at all times.
Our students are taught by a team of dedicated staff, they are provided with the very best pastoral care, and they enjoy the best facilities that any school could have including a swimming pool, Olympic standard sports facilities, tiered-seat theatre, sprung-floor dance studio, individual music rehearsal rooms, photographic studio with dark room, and many newly-refurbished classrooms. In addition, our bright and modern college-style Post 16 Centre is home to nearly 700 students, providing them with lessons taught by subject-specialist teachers in smart classrooms and purpose-built vocational workshops and salons. It really is a unique school-based post 16 facility.
Ashfield School is currently the largest secondary school in the country, lying on the Nottinghamshire / Derbyshire border and accommodating nearly 2700 students, 170 teachers and 130 support staff.
