Our Vision and Aim


Ashley College aims to provide a continuity of education for children who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to attend school. Delivery of the service aims and ethos is shaped by DFE guidance: Ensuring a good education for children who cannot attend school because of health needs. 2013 and Section 19 of the Education Act 1996).

We are a small provision, for KS1-KS4, offering centre based support for 20 pupils at any one time and home tuition for children and young people who are unable to attend their mainstream school or our centre. Working with parents/carers, mainstream schools, support agencies and community we strive for nothing short of excellence in all that we do. We are never complacent about our achievements and are always looking for ways to improve our practice further.


Through the promotion of our core values of resilience, self-confidence, tolerance, self-esteem, and respect provide a safe and nurturing environment where children and young people feel listened to, valued, supported, gain confidence and thrive, ready to face challenges.

OUR AIMS: ‘Building confidence for the future’

  • To provide a well-resourced and innovative provision with life-enriching experiences.
  • To provide high quality personalised education and therapeutic support
  • To enable children and young people to successfully reintegrate back or transition into mainstream education.
  • To support and enable every pupil to achieve to their full potential and be all that they can be as lifelong learners.

Overall, there is much more ambition and aspiration for pupils. Everyone is energised and focused on improving the school still further.
