The Curriculum

We offer an excellent range of A-level subjects choices, without restriction, and course lengths: one-year, 18-month and two years. One-year GCSE courses: core and optional subjects.

Games & the Arts

Ashbourne offers an exciting programme of extra-curricular activities for all tastes. Highlights include student creative arts events, music concerts and exhibitions, Ashbourne Allstars football team, critical theory seminars and clubs ranging from astro-particle physics to meditation.

Pastoral Care

Confidence building is one of our main goals as we believe it makes all the difference in helping our students feel secure, happy and able to achieve their best. Each A-level student is assigned a dedicated personal tutor who works closely with them, their parents, teachers and the director of studies to support and guide them in their studies, welfare and personal development throughout their time at the college.

University Places

54 per cent of graduates go to Russell Group universities, including Oxbridge.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Ashbourne embraces a friendly, informal and adult approach to education where students are encouraged to become self-reliant and independent-thinkers, both in their personal and academic lives. We believe students who do best are those who feel supported, confident and take full responsibility for their success.
