Ashmead School

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

School Governors - Who's Who

The school governing body meet each month to discuss and review very aspects of school life. They are involved in all areas of education, finance and administration and are a critical component of the schools self evaluation and development process.


From time to time Governor vacancies arise, if you think you can make a contribution to the further success of our school we would be delighted to hear from you.

You can contact ALL members of the governing Body via the main school email -
