The Ashley School Academy Trust

We are an outstanding outward looking and successful school for children with complex and moderate learning difficulties. All pupils have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) for their educational needs. These statements are mainly for moderate learning difficulties, However many pupils have associated disabilities such as speech & language, autism and/or behaviour difficulties.

The Ashley School Academy Trust is a special school for both boys and girls from Year 3 to Year 11 and includes Residential provision and Outreach Services. 

We have specialist status for SEN Cognition & Learning. We are committed to providing outstanding opportunities for all our pupils.

The Ashley School Academy Trust has been awarded Outstanding in the most recent OfSTED inspection (November 2017) and our Residential provision was also rated as Outstanding in its most recent joint Ofsted/Social Care inspection (November 2017).
