A nurturing, Christian family growing a compassionate and confident learning community.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our website and explore what our wonderful school has to offer.

Five Ashes was inspected by OFSTED in June 2016 and we have included some quotes from our inspection letter below which I hope will give you a flavour of what makes our school so special. If you require any further information that is not available on our website please do not hesitate to get in touch, we will be only too happy to assist you.

Head of School

OFSTED graded us 'GOOD'

'Leaders have maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.' 

'Pupils feel happy and safe at school and continue to behave well during lessons and social times. Supervision in the playground is attentive and caring.' 

'Following the good example of all the adults, pupils care well for one another and the school’s ethos of care and attention for pupils’ individual needs is clear. Staff know pupils and their families well.'

'There are high expectations for the quality of teaching and every pupil’s achievement.'  

'All pupils supported by additional funding make good, and sometimes strikingly good, progress. Gaps between the achievement of these pupils and others are closing rapidly.' 

Five Ashes was described as ‘a small school which looks out.’
