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 a statement 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, Outreach Services and our Oulton Broad Water Sports Centre (OBWSC). 

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 (April 2014).
