Ashford School

“Bringing out the best in everyone through adventurous learning.”

About the School

Parents choose Ashford School for many reasons: high achievement at A-level leading to the best UK universities; close attention to the needs of the individual; an orderly, challenging and supportive environment; a wide range of co-curricular activities; and energetic, specialist teachers that are supported by extensive. We specialise in those subjects that the leading universities value most highly.

Our tradition of excellence and achievement goes hand-in-hand with our ability to develop self-reliance, compassion and boldness. Of profound importance to us are the relationships that we nurture, the freedom to be creative, the enterprise to initiate and the resilience to cope with adversity.


Our facilities include a new sports centre, indoor swimming pools, an AstroTurf for hockey, football, netball and tennis, all-weather netball, basketball and tennis courts, gyms, specialist art, design technology, ICT and science labs, a well-stocked learning centre, a student café and atrium, a dining hall, pupil common rooms, playing fields and playgrounds for cricket, football and rugby, an auditorium and theatre, and a music school with several performance areas. We are an all-Steinway School, meaning our Senior School music department has only Steinway pianos.


Around 160 boarders from around the world make their home here. The school’s boarding houses are located within grounds of over 25 acres and accommodate boys and girls from 10 to 18 years. Students benefit from shared rooms for two or three children, or individual study-bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms for older pupils. With no lessons on Saturdays, there is plenty of time to make use of the school facilities and weekly boarders can participate fully. Full boarders benefit from a weekend activity programme, which includes visits to London and Canterbury, and they learn to live and work together, developing deep and lasting friendships along the way. Our International Centre students make full use of the school’s facilities and live in a special, beautifully refurbished house on East Hill.
