Overview

Ashby Church of England Primary School is situated in the heart of the National Forest in Ashby de la Zouch.

We aim to provide all our children with an exciting start to their education in a school which cares, guides, stimulates and supports everyone in our school community.

We have high standards of expectation in both work and behaviour which is reflected in our end of Key Stage results and our current Ofsted grading of Good.

Our staff and Governors are dedicated in aiming for all of our children to achieve the very best they can in all aspects of their lives

About Us

As a Church of England School we have excellent links with our local church, Holy Trinity and our vicar Rev Tim Phillips.

Our Church of England status adds to the caring ethos of our school community, which welcomes everyone regardless of faith.

Our school currently has 290 pupils on role which we organise into four teams; Foundation Stage, Year 1 and 2, Year 3 and 4 and Year 5 and 6.

Our curriculum is designed to enable our children to see the links between subjects in a practical, fun and relevant way with a focus on basic skills in literacy and maths.

'The school is held in high regard by its local community. The overwhelming majority of parents and carers who gave their views were full of praise for your school. One comment reflects how most parents feel about the quality of education you and your staff provide: ‘I couldn’t be happier with how my children are getting on at this school, academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually’ Ofsted Report, June 2018

Living and Working in Leicestershire

In the Heart of England - Residents of Leicestershire enjoy the best of everything

From refreshing and beautiful countryside and personable market towns to vibrant city living, Leicestershire offers a distinctive and high quality of life that will suit all lifestyles

Leicestershire is a beautiful county at the heart of England, within the developing National Forest.  It is a county where you can discover completely unspoilt villages and market towns, open countryside and panoramic views with rocky summits and secluded valleys.

Leicestershire has a wide variety of attractions including Bosworth Battlefield, where the course of English history changed dramatically, Snibston Discovery Park, which recalls our industrial past, and the National Space Centre.

Loughborough, in the north of the County is at the forefront of Information Technology and Loughborough University is also the national headquarters for many sports in the UK.  A number of Olympic teams will be training at Loughborough University in preparation for the 2012 Games in London, including, among others, the British Swimming Team, the British Triathlon Team, the elite British Athletes and the English Women’s Football Team.

The jet engine was invented in Lutterworth, in the south of the County, while Hinckley in the west was where the hosiery and footwear industries evolved.  Ashby-de-la-Zouch, in the north-west, and Market Harborough, in the south-east, are two very attractive, historical market towns.  Melton Mowbray, in the north-east, is a rural market town famous for the pork pie and for Stilton cheese.

Cosmopolitan and cultured, historic but futuristic, Leicester in the centre of the County is nothing if not varied, with its strong cultural diversity, excellent entertainment, night-life and restaurants.  The newly re-developed centre of the City offers a wide range of shopping opportunities, from the largest permanent outdoor market in Europe to the extensive Highcross shopping centre.

Leicestershire is well served by many transportation networks.  Four motorways (M1, M69, M42 and M6) run through the County, and there are regular trains to London, Nottingham, Birmingham and the North.  For international travel East Midlands Airport is located in the north of the County, and Birmingham Airport is also easily accessible
