Ashmead School

Ashmead provides its children with two everlasting things, one is roots, the other wings.


School Aims for Academic year 2013/14


This year, we have two main aims in order to improve pupil participation and enjoyment in sport across the school:

1. The first aim is to continue to offer children access to, and experience of, a range of alternative sports that are not currently taught during curriculum time (e.g. Handball, Dodgeball, Badminton, Rock Climbing)

2. The second aim is to improve and increase the provision of extra curricular sport available to children both at lunch time and after school.
