If so, we want to hear from you!

We are looking to appoint a Headteacher who has the drive, passion and leadership experience to guide the school through its next challenging, but exciting, phase.

Ashby School is a successful Academy with a large sixth form, a history spanning 453 years and a strong relationship with the local community. We are now embarking on a new chapter as we prepare to join a successful Multi Academy Trust at the start of 2021 and introduce age range change in August 2022 to become an 11-18 school.

Ashby School has benefited from extensive development and re-furbishment over recent years to create outstanding facilities for our students. During 2020, the school site has been re-modelled into two separate campuses consisting of a dedicated post-16 campus and a high quality, well-equipped KS4 site. Work is about to begin on the building of a new £1 million faculty to accommodate our English Department.

We are already looking ahead to the next stage in our development to ensure that the site is ready to welcome KS3 students in 2022.

Providing a high quality and enjoyable educational experience for all students is at the heart of everything we do. Our highly skilled staff team and experienced and committed governing body are dedicated to this aim.
