Welcome to ASHS:
It is a great pleasure to introduce you to our school website and hope you find in it all the information that you need. Possibly the greatest strength of the school is its friendly atmosphere and sense of community.
We are proud of our well-deserved high reputation as the only Church of England VA High School in East Anglia. Archbishop Sancroft has become an increasingly popular choice amongst parents due to:
- Our comparatively small size which means we really can offer Christian child-centred education
- Our focus on developing the whole person - physical, social, moral and spiritual
The school’s Mission Statement, bringing together both spiritual and educational goals, sets out the aims to which all who work in the school aspire:
In keeping with our Christian values, the School Staff, Students, Parents and Governors, will work together to encourage a real enthusiasm for learning and pride in our school.
As a team, we aim to offer education which is challenging, informing, exciting and enjoyable. We will have succeeded if everyone is given the chance to achieve the best results possible, and is equipped with life skills and experience for their future.
Our Core Values
* These core values will be our focus for this academic year 2013 - 2014.
Head Teacher notes:
This half term's core value: Service
Theme for this week (21-23 July): ‘Looking ahead’
A massive thank you to all who made the ASHStude event on Saturday such a huge success. We are very fortunate indeed to have such a great PTA who have so much energy and enthusiasm to support the school. Click on ‘Follow us on twitter’ to the right of this page for some photos (including me being dropped rather unceremoniously into the ‘dunk tank’).
Thank you also to the local businesses and organisations that accommodated our Year 10 students over the last fortnight for Work Experience. You have given the students an invaluable insight to the world of work.
