About Ashford CofE Primary School

Ashford CE Primary School is a two form entry Voluntary Aided Church of England primary school which has provided high quality education to the local community for over 200 years. We are situated in the heart of the parish of St Matthew’s and St Hilda’s in Ashford Middlesex (Surrey Local Authority). At Ashford CE we encourage our children to reach their full potential in a nurturing and supportive Christian environment. Our founding principles are based on love, compassion and respect for all. We are fully inclusive and welcome pupils and families of Christian faith, other faiths and no faith.

Our current partnership with another local LDBS school is coming to an end in July 2022 so we are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic individual who will continue to establish and promote our vision and lead, nurture and inspire our children and staff to guide Ashford CE through the next phase of our development on our journey.
