Welcome to Ashgrove Primary


A warm welcome!

As the Principal of Ashgrove Primary School I extend to you a very warm welcome to our website.  Through this we aim to give you a flavour of the pastoral and academic success all pupils in our school can experience.  We wish every child to have special and happy memories of their time with us in Ashgrove Primary giving them the skills, attitudes and desire to reach their full potential. 

Recently we have undergone an extensive refurbishment of our school building giving us bright and modern facilities to offer the pupils in our care.  We have included some photographs of our new facilities on our website- be sure to have a look!

Our mission statement is 'Learning, Caring, Growing Stronger Together' As a school we are focused on realising and achieving this potential for every child in our community. 

If you would like to see our school and what we have to offer I would be delighted to speak with you.

Kind regards

Robert Smith
