Examination Results 2014

Another Record Breaking Year for ASHS   

Congratulations to Year 11 who should be very proud of their achievements. Key headline results are as follows:

%5 A*-C: 70%

%5 A*-C (including English and maths): 60%

English A*-C: 84%    Maths A*-C: 66%

I wish every one of them the best of luck as they move onto the next step in their lives. Every one of them has been a credit to the school.

These results are the result of hard work, encouragement and support from the students, their Parents and Carers, staff and Governors.

A reminder that school reopens to students on Thursday 4th September when we look forward in particular to welcoming our new Year 7 students.

Mr Cranmer


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:

Our Mission

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

  • Truthfulness*
  • Humility*
  • Justice*
  • Hope*
  • Perseverence*
  • Creativity*
* These core values will be our focus for this academic year 2014 - 2015.

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.

  • Monday- Year 10 Work Experience reflection activity Periods 1 & 2, Year 10 Celebration Assembly
  • Tuesday- Years 7, 8 & 9 Celebration Assembly
  • Wednesday- School closes at 2pm for the summer holiday.

Please enjoy a very happy and safe holiday and we look forward to seeing everyone return for the start of term on Thursday 4thSeptember.
