Ashford School prides itself if offering a wide range of A Level subjects. This year, 26 subjects were taken, as well as the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and BTEC Sport. The School gives extensive support to pupils applying for higher education and apprentices and we are proud of the many pathways that are being taken.

The Year 11 students who received their GSCE results performed just as well as the Year 13 cohort. Some noteworthy achievements include:

  • Emily achieved 1 A*, 1 A, nine 9s and one 8
  • Molly achieved nine 9s and one 8

  • Josh achieved six 9s and 2 8s

We look forward to welcoming the Year 11s back to Ashford School in September for Sixth Form.

Headmaster, Mr Michael Hall, said, “Over the past 18 months our students have shown tremendous maturity and resilience in responding to the uncertainty and disruption that the pandemic has placed on all of our lives. We have been fortunate that, as a school with significant expertise in technology, we were able to introduce the highest quality online provision for students immediately and so that all our students – both in the UK and our boarders who were unable to travel back to school – could access a full academic curriculum throughout the periods of Lockdown. Achieving this has required a genuine partnership between students, staff and parents across the school community and I would like to pay tribute to the amazing work that our teachers, support staff and students’ families have undertaken to encourage our young people with their learning.”
