Welcome message from our headteacher

A very warm welcome

I am pleased and honoured to have been appointed as your Headteacher at Ashton Park School and Sixth Form. Ashton Park is a kind and warm school that puts the needs and learning of your children at the heart of all that we do.

I firmly believe in working together in partnerships with families. We all want the same thing – we want your children to be successful. We want your children to feel safe and cared for. We want your children to be valued members of our diverse and fully inclusive community, and we all want your children to have an excellent education and experience a variety of opportunities. As a family man myself, I share these aspirations for all the students who attend Ashton Park School and Sixth Form.

Our students are polite, well-mannered, articulate and kind. This is a clear indication of well-rounded young people who can further develop to be very successful at Ashton Park and in their future lives.

I have been teaching many years in different parts of the country and I have been fortunate to have been involved with many successful schools.

People are always at the heart of all that I do. I believe in using the collective intelligence of a group of people to allow us all to grow and develop and your voice as parents and carers and our school community is important to me.

I look forward to meeting you and leading the education for your children.

Richard Uffendell
